A lustrous white porcelain vase with well-formed ring handles, its shape reminiscent of ancient Chinese bronzes. Large rondels rendered in soft pastels describe a meditative scene - a sage out for a walk with his attendants, the latter ready to prepare his calligrapy implements. Framed against this tranquil background of majestic pine and serene figures, floral lappets decorate the vase's rim and neck -banding with vivid images of phoenix and foliage. This Chinese-inspired vase by the Master is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. Makuzu Kozan underglaze blue signature on the base. Diameter" 8" Meiji Period, Japan
