Ceramics and Porcelains
Appears to be porcelain
Odd shaped "handles" near the lip. Chinese characters printed on the bottom.
This was a gift to me from a friend who bought it in an antique shop. She usually buys nice gifts, so I have no idea whether this is junk sold deceptively, or if it's a decent piece. I noted that the middle of one of the flowers seems to be gone, but cannot "scrape" away any of the design, so I'm not sure when that happened or if it screams "decal"? I've had this thing for years and would love to know if I have an orange paperweight or something that had/has any value. The design is only on the front and it's about 10" tall and 4.5" at its widest.
As above, purchased from an antique shop in Los Angeles.
