A large four-paneled Hirado porcelain baluster vase with demon-head handles at the shoulder. Heavily carved lappets at foot and neck accentuate the varied treatments evident in the panels. All depict majestic cranes flying over turbulent waves - two of the alternating panels carved in the porcelain, the other two rendered in various gradations of underglaze blue. This excellent example of the princely Hirado medium is in excellent condition, making it a valuable addition to any Hirado lover's collection. Height: 15.5" 19th Century, Japan
