An unusual Satsuma moon flask with pyramidal base by the renowned artist, Yabu Meizan. Characteristic lakeside scenes and sparrows perched among blossoming peony branches are painted with fine detail and jewel-tones are enameled on each rondel. Along the sides and the base, a multitude of butterflies flutter about exquisitely rendered floral wreaths and white iris rising from a stylized stream. The Yabu Meizan gilt signature cartouche is on the base. This Satsuma vase is in excellent condition with no damage and no restoration. Height: 6.5" Meiji Period, Japan
