Product description

Vintage ceramic pin dish - orange-brown lustre with cat design (c.1930s-50s)
A c.1930s-50s vintage shaped ceramic pin dish, measuring approximately 12.9 x 7.2 x 0.9cm / 5.1 x 2.85 x 0.35in (max), with orange-brown lustre glazed finish with hand-coloured black transfer depiction of a brown cat beneath a window to the upper surface, dark red-brown rim, part-glazed white sides and unglazed base with red printed "FOREIGN" stamp; the piece is Japanese in overall style, although the illustration appears to be Western in inspiration.
There is some age wear including some scratching and abrasion to the surface, wear to the lustre finish, slight oxidation to the painted decoration, and considerable marking to the base; the base does not lie truly level, and there are other manufacturing imperfections including slight roughness to the edges and some unevenness to the surface including a large raised bump and several smaller bumps in the glaze.
