Beautiful blue & white Oriental porcelain. Looks like a song bird pirched atop a bird house. 9 3/4 inches wide, 1 3/4 inches high like a pasta serving bowl.
We believe it is 20th century Japanese but do not read Asian marks.

8 1/2 inches. Scallop shape with a vase and flowers in bright Imari colors, orange, blue with green leaves. Japan Meiji period late 1800s to early 1900s.
Entirely hand painted with the exception of the blue, which is stenciled, (a common Japanese practice at the time.)
The hand painting, a little rushed and sloppy perhaps, but that lends a refreshing naivety to the piece and a welcome change from the usual buttoned down meticulousness of Japanese decoration. It's a reminder of the carefully calculated carelessness that the Japanese introduced into their tea ceremony ware deliberately to get away from the stiff formality of high society....Robert S., Justanswer.
