|A studio porcelain vase remarkably modern in appearance. Its rounded body is defined by representations of two realistic crabs set against a finely graduated blue ground. Each crab is executed with extensive detailing and shading, the creatures in low relief. The fine hairs on these crustaceans are rendered naturalistically, a feat achievable with apparent ease by the great ceramist, Makuzu Kozan. Signed and sealed Makuzu Kozan saku, its tomobako inscribed Suiyu Kani ga. This splendid porcelain vase is in excellent condition with no damage or restoration. Height: 11.5" Meiji /Taisho Periods, Japan|
