Large Imari Arita Japanese Vase Nabeshima Nationa Treasure 13th Imaizumi Imaemon For Sale

Large Imari Arita Japanese Vase Nabeshima Nationa Treasure 13th Imaizumi Imaemon

Large Vase by famous and great potter, the 13th Imaizumi Imaemon (1926-2001), a living national treasure of Japan.

Arita/Imari ware porcelain. Nabeshima Yoshiki. Iro-Nabeshima.

Signed.

In excellent, immaculate condition. This vase is truly a museum piece.

This vase is hand painted in enamels on a white ground. The painting depicts peony flowers, unopened buds, and smaller flowers in a vibrant red overglaze enamel. This is set against veined leaves (maple and a branch of small leaves) painted in blue enamel in the underglaze and in green enamel in the overglaze (glazed). Please see the pictures The mark of Imaizumi Imaemon is painted in underglaze blue on the base. The artistry and workmanship is truly astonishing.

A similar vase by Imaizumi Imaemon was presented to the President of the United States by the Emperor and Empress of Japan to mark their state visit to the United States, and is preserved in the Presidential Library. The Emperor and Empress of Japan have given vases by Imaizumi Imaemon to two presidents of the United States, the president of Russia, and other world leaders. This is a testimony of the esteem in which this potter is held.

Appraised value of this vase is $5200.00 (USD)

Measurements (approximate):

9 inches tall

5 inches at widest point

3 3/4 inches opening

3 inches base

I have provided pictures of the front, left and right sides, detail of enameling, decoration around the opening, and signature on the base.

The thirteenth Imaizumi Imaemon created the technique of sometsuke fuki-boku and usu-boku, 'blown-on' techniques that leave gray and blue tinges and pigments upon the porcelain body. This constituted a new and revolutionary color scheme for Nabeshima porcelain. Because of this accomplishment, his kiln (Imaemon-gama) was designated an "important intangible property" in 1975, and Imaemon himself was proclaimed as a Living National Treasure in 1989.

The Nabeshima family kilns were founded in 1660 to produce porcelain wares to the feudal lord Nabeshima, who presented them to the other feudal lords (shogun). It was not until the Meiji period that these fine porcelain wares were permited to be sold outside of the Nabeshima family. The Imaizumi family of decorators worked at the Nabeshima kilns from the begginning, and continue to the present day in the person of the 14th Imaizumi Imaemon (the son of the creator of this vase).

I do not intend to profit from shipping charges. Charges quoted are approximate. If actual cost is less that what I have charged you, I will refund the difference. I actual cost is more, I will pay the difference.
