One of a kind Japanese Meiji Period (1868-1912) Bishu-ware Cadogan Pot with raised and low-relieved sculptural leaves. The peach- shaped Pot is made with an opening for water on a bottom ( it is of a rare and beautiful construction). It also allows hot water to stay hot for a longer period. The Pot is decorated with two very fine decorative panels (which are performed on a high-end satsuma level). The Pot features two aristocrat ladies and four children, butterflies and trees, a man with 5 boys and cranes; some flying cranes are also covered with fine raised dots. The cranes are made with low relief enameling. The handle and a spout have colorful enamel and gold scrolls, as well as the bottom of a pot. It is in excellent condition. 7 1/4" x 8 1/4" D.
