This is a beautiful little Japanese planter, very suitable for bonsai and probably made for that purpose. It is made of white porcelain, decorated with hand-painted flowers, foliage and mosses in cobalt blue (sometsuke). The internal measurements are nearly 4 inches (10 cm) across and 3.5 inches (8 cm) deep.Externally, it is over 4.5 inches across and over 4.25 inches high. It sits well on four elevated feet. Condition is excellent, with no chips, cracks or restoration. There is some internal staining on the unglazed surface, but this is really very limited. There are some minor firing cracks to the base, but these are original and a clear sign of its age. I have many other antique and vintage Japanese pieces for sale. Why don't you check them out?
