This is an impressive Satsuma censer on self stand with pierced cover, handles and a lovely sculptural finial of kiku and leaves surmounted on its lid. The censer is done in the early Satsuma style using gosu blue, deep iron-red glazes and gilt detailing. On the body, flowering sakura trees emerge from a patch of lush chrysanthemums. The koro is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. Signed SEIZAN in gilt on the base with a rich gosu blue Shimazu mark, indicating that the piece was made in the Satsuma province. Height: 10.5" 19th Century, Japan
