In furtherance to my previous post here is some more information for you.
The kinkozan kiln was first established in about 1645 and closed in 1927.
Your vase is a celestial styled pear shaped monochrome with relief dragon. It's sometimes referred to as Sang de boeuf style.
Yours is marked made by kinkozan. It's Kinkozan Sobei V 1868-1927.
The red blood glaze is actually very rare for him. I have only ever seen two others besides the one I already own. Now I have seen three others.
As I am sure you will appreciate. These monochromes have to be seen in person to really appreciate them. Photos just don't do them justice.
I hope you will enjoy your kinkozan!
