Lot 52 , A Kutani miniature vase and two other Japanese vases tallest 43.5cm
A Kutani miniature vase and two other Japanese vases tallest 43.5cm
Tallest vase has had a large chunk broken off and re-glued at the top and it is quite evident in the image. It in fact looks as if the entire neck has been broken off and re-glued as there is a crack running the entire way around horizontally. Second largest vase has visible wear to gold paint and crazing visible throughout as does the smaller piece. All pieces have typical minor flaws in the manufacture
