A round Satsuma plate, its asymmetric visual a collaboration between the painter Eizan and the ceramicist, Hattori. Reminiscent of the famous scrolls and paintings of simian subjects by Mori Morikata Sosen, the imagery shows a realistically-painted group of monkeys among boughs of blossoming sakura alongside a waterfall. Front-face signature and seal of Eizan. Signature on reverse, “Satsuma-yaki, Hattori”. This charming and unique Satsuma plate is in excellent condition. Diameter: 7.25” Meiji Period, Japan
