Antique Porcelain Vase
(Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada)
Received as a gift in the early 60's, and was considered to be an antique back then. Not sure how old it actually is, or if it's origin is Chinese or Japanese. Any information would be appreciated.
The character at the bottom of the vase is painted under the clear glaze. I haven't been able to figure out what it represents, or what period it may be from.
It measures approx. 18cm tall and 22cm wide. The diameter of the 4 globes is approx. 11 1/2 cm.
