An exquisite Satsuma bowl of shallow, circular form. A lively arrangement of fan-shaped cartouches decorate the exterior with sumptuous textile patterns and lush floral scenes in gosu, iron red enamel and gilt. Inside, a generous display of gilt work details a delicate, brocaded necklace in rich jewel tones. In the central rondel, an animated sea dragon, brilliantly enameled in deep gosu blue and vibrant gilt surges in and out of turbulent waves. The three-toed dragon is powerfully executed, each scale well-defined and its fierce face rendered in great detail. This Satsuma shallow bowl is in excellent condition with no imperfections. The piece bears the Satsuma province mon in gosu and gilt with the Tanshu signature. Diameter: 7.25" 19th Century, Japan
