What’s it worth? Appraisal of Arita bowl

Cathy asks:

Here you go.  The bowl is about 3 inches high and 13 or so wide.  I don’t have the bowl here with me.  I am remembering here.  I will be able to measure it again tonight if you need precise measurement.

AW says: This is a nice late 18th to early 19th century classic Japanese Arita style bowl.  It appears to be on the theme of a suitor come to visit maidens.  It’s in excellent condition.

The Arita style goes back to the 1600s but we can tell from the bottom of the bowl that it dates no earlier than the late 1700s, and not likely later than the early 1800s.  (thanks for the good pictures)
