Why this is a
Masterpiece

Japanese porcelain was popular in Europe. The Japanese made special objects just for export to Europe. The quality of the export porcelain was not as good as the porcelain for the home market. As Siebold was in Japan he had access to the higher quality objects, this is one of them.

History of the Object
Siebold acquired this object while he was in Japan. As he did not keep thorough records of the origin of the objects, the exact history of this object is unknown.
