More details about this item

Early Porcelain Chinese Satsuma Vase This is an example of new porcelain items pretending to be antique or vintage Japanese Satsuma. False items are mostly being exported from China but remember, real Satsuma has always been an entirely Japanese-made pottery. It was never originally made in China or anywhere else, only Japan. If the mark on the bottom of a piece indicates it was made in a country other than Japan, it cannot be Satsuma. Simply printing the word 'Satsuma' on an item cannot make it something it is not. Also remember Satsuma is a type of pottery, not porcelain. The body of Satsuma ware (the clay) is a non-translucent pottery type which may be buff or creamy colored. Body color can be observed on the unglazed area of the foot rim. The example in this listing is marked with a Tea cup symbol and 'Made in China' in English. The additional writing reads, "Zhong Guo Zhi Zao" which can be given an English translation of 'China make' (as in to 'make' something new). These characters were applied to be read left to right, in the Western manner, too. That feature alone easily identifies this item as modern. Only items made from the late 20th to the present will bear the mark shown here. All Chinese made 'Satsuma' marked items are contemporary fakes. While they may have some decorative appeal they hold no potential future value for collectors of authentic Japanese Satsuma. Measures 8' inches tall, 2.75 inches across the top and it has a 2.75 inch base. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Many on-line booksellers describe their books using a grading system which, despite best efforts and intent, is often subjective and disappointing. MOST OF MY BOOKS ARE NEW , or like new - high quality material; no book club editions, no ex library volumes. YOU WILL BE SATISFIED and I’ll make every effort to make it so. Given this, books are available at a fraction of the prices you’d find at even the best discounted merchants. If you find a similar title listed for less elsewhere , the chances are that the shipping and handling charges will marginalize that "bargain” or that the condition is not the same. . Almost always, unless you request otherwise, books will be shipped by MEDIA MAIL. This is a weight based service and I try to be accurate. There’s no handling charge, no hidden fees and I’ll get back to you if you write. FEEDBACK: Most welcomed, but please use common sense. Unless you have less intelligence than the pistachio nut, contact me immediately with any issue you may have. Please don’t engage in thoughtless knee-jerking! You will always do well if you talk to me first! A NOTE ABOUT NEW BOOKS THAT ARE NOT RECENTLY PUBLISHED: Some books listed as new are indeed new, but were published several years ago. These are from new old stock, meaning that the book has never been used but may have wear from long term storage. A NOTE ABOUT ANTIQUARIAN AND COLLECTIBLE BOOKS: Since the proper evaluation can not be done without several detailed photos, they will be provided upon inquiry or expression of interest. Refunds: I have no set policy since every case is different but I guarantee satisfaction. I make every effort to accommodate you. In general: no fuss, and no problem but must be returned in the original condition within 10 days of receipt. Items that have been removed from their original sealed wrap (CDs, Books, etc that were in blister packs) will be credited at 80 % of item’s price. Once out of my control, I can’t assume responsibility in the event of loss or damage of uninsured items in transit so I recommend that the buyer purchase insurance for high value items. I DON’T CHARGE FOR BOOKS TO THE MEN AND WOMEN SERVING IN THE ARMED SERVICES or for people trying to cope with a threatening or life changing illness. You have enough on your plate - just cover the shipping and handling. INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Items weighing under 4 pounds are shipped First class international, which is a fairly economic way to ship. Anything over 4 pounds must be shipped Priority International, which can be very costly, so be sure to contact me about finding the least costly way to ship. PRIORITY MAIL. This is generally okay for most books but the book must fit into a especially sized envelope, so large books or oversized books will not generally fit. Also, the service is not available for every country. I would appreciate it if Canadian buyers use Postal Money Order in US FUNDS, please. I am always interested in hearing from foreign sellers who may wish to buy in quantities- in fact, I will discount larger shipments. Our shipping and handling charges for Canadian and other international orders do not include taxes, duties, or brokerage fees. These taxes and fees are the sole responsibility of the recipient International Shipping: Unless requested to use another carrier , shipping will be by US Postal Service -First Class International or Priority International Please bear in mind that there can be customs delays on your shipment. ------------------------------------------------ New to this site?
