A charming, small Satsuma sake cup rendered in rich enameled colors. Its exterior depicts continuous imagery of a lakeside village scene with huts, pine and dramatic waterfalls. Within, an amusing party of macaques in black, brown and white coats are engaged in social activities - grooming, wrestling and eating. Minute detailing and whimsicality characterize this fabulous sake cup. Very good condition, with only minor wear to the gilt along the rim. Artist gilt signature plaque on base. Height: 1.5”, diameter: 2.5” Meiji Period, Japan
