Three Antique Kyoto Satsuma Cha Wan
The Art and Orchid Gallery offers cha wan, or tea bowls, hand decorated by Japanese artists whose superb technical skills were combined with gracefulness of form and a fine mixture of compounded colors.[3A, 11B] Kyoto Satsuma was exported to the West between 1875 and 1920 to satisfy the high demand for this Japanese ceramic art work generated by the International Expositions of 1862, 1867, 1873 and 1876.[34C, 104D] Most Kyoto Satsuma ware was decorated with hand painted floral designs. These three tea bowls were certainly exported for decorative purposes and are covered inside and outside with a millefleur pattern. Similarly, gilt and enameled Satsuma of this age can be found in references.[34E, 23F] These bowls have heavy gold outlines and in lines mostly on matt polychromed enamels. The largest bowl is highlighted with glossy white thick enamel realistic chrysanthemums. The rest of the florals are conventionalized. The cha wan are in very good or better condition. There is a little missing gilding shown in the photos. All are marked on the bottom. The cross in the square is for the Kyoto School.[34G] References available upon request. Sizes: Largest: ~ 5 1/2" in diameter; 2 others: ~ 4 1/2" in diameter;
