Asher Hicks replied to Asher Hicks's discussion Japanese Vase in the group Whadja Find Today

"This is the base.  A foot lifts the bowl up and off the table. Your bowl rests on its base; it doesn't have a foot.   The first or upper character is Ni chi-pon (Nippon) which is Japanese for "Japan".  I can't find…"

Michael replied to Asher Hicks's discussion Orihon Book in the group Whadja Find Today
"The clothing, drawing style and architecture are very Chinese, although as Jeff mentioned, Japan does have a lot of similarities, these images are intended to depict Chinese people, in China within the Chinese storyline. It's not so much that…"

"Thank you Jeff - it may come down to what sort of paper is used. I'm not very experienced in paper, and I don't have any definitive examples to compare this to. However the prints might be attached to washi, traditional Japanese paper. The…"

"I'll be very interested in Michael's answer too. I noticed that the furniture in the illustrations looked Chinese, but Japan borrowed so much from China I thought it must be Japanese. Japan also borrowed the pagoda architecture, and it…"

"Well according to Michael it is the Legend of the White Snake - which, the original legend at least, is about a boy who buys immortality pills and vomits into the river, in which a snake consumes it and gains magical powers for 500 years. A tortoise…"

"Thank you Michael! I'm surprised this is a Chinese legend - knowing Orihon is traditionally made in Japan and how the characters wear kimonos, as Jeff said. Is there a chance this was made in Japan even with the Chinese legend? Or are they…"

"I see you’ve updated and added pictures beyond the two original pics you had. Clearly not a domestic scene with the battle scenes you added. One of the pics shows a six story pagoda, which would be quite unusual in Japan and maybe could be…"

"Your story is the "Legend of the White Snake" and is a Chinese legend first put into writing during the Mind dynasty. Too lengthy to go into here, but if you visit en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legend_of_the_White_Snake you will find more."
