Images for vase #1/2
Images for vase #2/2
Age: Meiji Period (1868 - 1912).
Size: 11cm in width (widest section) X 19cm in height.
Artist/signature: None. Identical to pieces signed by Meizan, which can be found over the internet and in many Satsuma books. The work is also unparalleled by any artist, other that Yabu Meizan himself.
Condition: Both pieces are in Excellent condition with NO cracks or restoration. One vase has a small chip to the top rim, an easy repair. There is also some very minor age related wear to the gilding, around the top rims of both vases.
Comments: The most impressive pairs of vases I have ever come across in my years of collecting Satsuma wares. A Museum Quality pair of Meiji Japanese Satsuma vases. The pair of vases each feature 10 painted cartouche panels, each depicting various scenes. Some of the scenes include; a lady performing a trick for some young children, flowers with "wave" patterns, birds in flight over flowers, meeting with village elders, burning incense for the gods, scholars learning, flowering baskets and many others.
Each panel is a work of art in itself, which must have taken several hours to complete. The panels are separated with the most exquisite geometric patterns, decorated using raised white enamel and finely gilded in some areas with Japanese floral patterns. Please examine the photos above to truly appreciate the outstanding effort put into producing this pair of vases, by the Yabu Meizan studio.
The top and bottom rims are also breathtakingly impressive. The top shoulders are filled with alternating panels featuring Kanji lettering and geometric shapes in various coloured enamels. The lower rims features fine scrollwork and exquisite raised patterning.
This is an early pair of Yabu Meizan vases, produced around the late 1860's - early 1880's. This can also explain why the pair are not signed, as many of Yabu Meizan's early works did not feature signatures, but were easy to identify from their exquisite detail and distinctive style.
