A delightful Satsuma vase of moon shape on pedestal base with monkeys frolicking mid blossoming sakura. On the reverse, an elder trudges up a mountain toward a refuge, villagers conversing nearby. A delicate brocade of pink and white moriage sakura buds on a black ground with gilt details decorates the neck and base, the two scenes executed in beautiful colored enamels. This vase is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. Gilt signature cartouche, Shizan, on lower left. Height: 3 ¾" Meiji Period, Japan
