Unsure if Chinese or Japanese, see the character marks to the base (refer to the 3 photos) 16.5cms high, in superb condition. No chips, cracks or repairs.
This really is a most unusual stunning piece with a bit of age about it. Export ware that dates just before or just after WW2, so c1930’s / 1940’s. Measures 58mm high to the top of the lid & weighs approx 83.3 grams.
