This is a rare Satsuma vase by the renowned Osaka-based artist Yabu Meizan, one of the masters in the medium. A small and fine neck gives way to its full sculptural shape. With special attention to the use of space, the artist places a brilliant red cardinal upon a leafy, fruit-bearing branch extending across the span of the vase. Details are in fine gilt and the Yabu Meizan signature cartouche is on the base. This vase is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. Height: 8.75” Meiji Period, Japan
