This is a truly rare and fabulous Satsuma Vase. It was made for the Japanese Imperial family. It has been in a private collection for decades. On one side all the blossoming flowers have raised relief enamel work. The gold detailing on this vase is as fine as we have ever seen. Unique glossy deep green ground on each panel. The blue Interspersed among this gilt decoration are the Imperial 16 petal Chrysanthemums and Kiri Mons. The footed base also exquisitely decorated heavily in gilt designs. Impressed Kinkozan mark on the underside. This vase is very heavy and quite large. It stands 10 inches tall and is 7 3/4 wide. Overall very good condition but there is some wear to the gold that is most noticeable on the top rim.
