Would someone be able to help with the writing on this moriage vase?

I think it's Japanese and the character is 芸 (Gei), which is translated be my Japanese online translator as: technique; art; craft; performance; acting; trick; stunt.

A rare Japanese Art Nouveau style vase, so prabably circa 1900. Never seen this before, so I might be wrong calling this Japanese. Perhaps the blank vase was Japanese and the decoration European.

Thank you, Martin. Looks like you must be correct since no one has commented otherwise. Appreciate it. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
