A Meiji Okimono of Kannon - Kutani Kilns
A fine and rare Kutani porcelain figure of Kannon (Kwanyin in China). The piece is delicately formed and glazed - then has the robe and features executed in the traditional Kutani colors of gold, blue, green,and eggplant purple. There are raised moriage dots on all parts of the robe and head piece - an unusual addition to a Kutani okimono.

Kannon is the goddess of compassion and kindness and is one of the most universally loved deities in Buddhism. The serene expression on this piece emphasizes the compassionate nature of Kannon.

The piece measures 11 7/8" high and is 4" wide by 5" deep. Excellent condition with no chips, hairlines or restorations. Dates from the mid to late Meiji period, circa 1880-1900.
