A porcelain incense burner of tripodic form with splayed legs, its configuration reminiscent of ancient Chinese bronzes. On its body, enameled in creamy tones, iron red and cobalt blue, the Imperial Court ceramicist, Makuzu Kozan I, masterfully designed panels of stylized baku, butterflies and demon-head medallions. Renowned ceramicist of the Meiji Period and well ahead of his time as an innovative creator, Makuzu Kozan was a versatile artist, whose works can be found in museums and private collections all over the world. His rectangular signature cartouche is on the base. Provenance: Exhibited at the Dennos Museum, Michigan 2003. This impressive incense burner is in excellent condition. Height: 9”, width: 11.5” Meiji Period, Japan
