A finely modeled Satsuma earthenware censer of octagonal form on eight, well-formed feet. Its reticulated body and cover are designed with elaborate gilt and enamel brocading, the panels, themselves celebrating the Japanese traditional love of nature. On the alternating panels, complex interactions among bjin and children under pine and sakura trees, villagers gathered by the banks of a river and families entertaining lakeside are executed in minute detail with gilt and jewel-toned enamels. Gilt Ryozan and Shimazu signature and seal visible on the base. This unique Satsuma piece is in excellent condition. Height: 7.25” Meiji Period, Japan
