A Very Fine Late Edo (1840-60) Gosu Blue Satsuma Vase
From our Japanese Collection, a very fine and early Gosu Blue satsuma vase, late Edo Period circa 1840-1860, signed Gyozan. There are four separate gilt-framed panels: Two depict shi-shi, one depicts scholar's table objects, and one depicts a flowering plant. Each panel is surmounted by birds in flight on the upper shoulder, probably phoenix. As with all of our satsuma offerings, this piece is of the highest quality, and is a particularly fine example of early Gosu Blue satsuma.

Size and Condition: 7 1/2 inches tall, 5 7/8 inches wide. Some very minor rubbing commensurate with age, essentially perfect.
