Subject:Help Translate inscription from a Chinese Vase on its Wooden box
Posted By: Ahmed Sai Sat, Jul 30, 2022 IP: 2600:1700:1e0:f850:b

I have this old Chinese vase that has no marking on the bottom except a tag with number 5713. The vase came in an original wooden box that has a Chinese writings. I would kindly ask for the translation of the writings.
I wasn't able to find this vase shape in my research, was this created specially for exports?
Thanks a lot!
Ahmed

Not 100% sure but I think it is Japanese.
Perhaps if we could see the base?

Thanks Mark. The bottom of the vase doesn't have any inscription except a small white paper tag with the number 5713. The exact number is on the wooden box. Which make made me think that this vase was accepted for export.

Please help identify the era and if it's Chinese or Japanese.
The form of the vase was not found in any online vases.
The vase is not completely painted on the inside. Just few inches below the rim. Is this common for exports? The crazing on the surface does show age for this vase. Any idea on the value?
Attaching more pics.

Mr I.Nagy has kindly provided you with the artist. So perhaps you can research said artist.
He also confirmed that it's indeed Japanese.
As to age I believe it is from the Showa period 1926-1989.
