Here is a striking Hirado porcelain vase of elegant baluster form with flared neck. Along its rim, Greek fret design in underglaze blue enamel adds to the overall elegance of the vase. Upon its body, a scene of Immortals is executed in soft shades of underglaze blue. Fukurokuju, Daikoku and Ebisu (three of the Seven Lucky Gods) are engaged in conversation with their corresponding attributes at their sides. A landscape with bamboo, pine and sakura serves as backdrop to this scene, while on the reverse two flying cranes symbolize longevity-a trait shared by these happy gods. This Hirado vase is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. Height: 12" 19th Century, Japan
