Circa 1890.  Nippon, porcelain, Moriage decorated humidor with a squirrel finial. Beautiful, bright colors and a charming design for the collector of Nippon or humidors in general.

A wonderful example of collectible Late 19th century Nippon pottery. Fresh from a local Brooklyn estate.  Unmarked. Good original condition, with two very tight, fine hairlines that can be seen on the inside and some minor, typical loss to the raised slip decoration. 8" tall x 5" diameter.   Price  $550.00
