An exceptionally fine late Edo period, 18th c., ca.1750, Hirado blue and white vase. The signature inside the glazed foot rim reads Hakuseki. This tactile vase is shaped is a broad vase with a short rolled mouth rim with a short neck and short foot rim. The entire body, (including the inner foot), is glazed with exception of the bottom of the foot rim exhibiting a fine texture and cream, beige color. The painting is quite fine and delicate, not typical Hirado studio. This 'loose' style of painting is more typical of Bunjin (scholarly) painters. The painting is serene and done n a soft brushwork technique, in translucent and rich violet cobalt blue depicting a mountain scene and hut.
