Vintage Japanese Gold 'Kinpaku' Porcelain Planter With Birds and White & Mauve Flowers
Stunning vintage 'gold leaf' Japanese porcelain planter.
The planter is decorated with 'gold leaf' squares that have been carefully overpainted with pairs of flying birds and delicate flowers, then lacquered. The flowers are cream, pink, lilac/mauve, apricot and white. All skillfully painted as is typical of Japanese pieces.
This is similar to the Byobu Japanese room divider that are gilded. This gorgeous planter can be turned to have either the flowers or the birds showing. It is eye catching - it brings life and colour to corners that need a little brightening up.
The inside is plain white.
H11", Dia 14.5".
*We have not tested the gold. We have stands available for sale if required.
