Impressive Antique 19th Century Japanese Meiji Period (1868-1912) Satsuma Vase For Sale

Description:

A genuine 19th Century Japanese Meiji period ovoid vase with shallow flared rim, the side panels decorated with exotic birds amongst blossoming foliage and figures approaching a nobleman, raised on a circular foot.

Painstakingly hand painted with beautifully detailed period decoration in gilt and various polychrome enamels (moriage). The crackling (Kannyu) of the soft, creamy glaze is typical and makes the vase look more antique in appearance, however this effect was used more to give richness and depth to the colours. The enamel and gilding is applied on top of the glaze so that it stands proud of the surface. The vase dates circa 1890.

Basic information:

Satsuma pottery dates back to the 16th century and is still produced today. This region in southern Japan is around the Kagoshima region. The distinguishing features of Satsuma ceramics are they have an ivory, creamy or off-white and sometime beige appearance. The pottery is then hand painted with brightly coloured enamels, gold and silver, in fine, intricate designs with careful attention to detail. The finest details were painted using a single rat’s hair. This allowed the painter to create lifelike expressions on faces and exquisite detailing on robes. Most Satsuma artists brought glazed blanks from potters and decorated them freehand with traditional Japanese motifs and patterns such as foliage and flowers, landscapes, real and mythical birds and human figures engaged in ceremonial, military, or domestic activities.

The thin translucent glaze with its applied design decoration deliberately ends up with a crackled finish.
