This beautiful okimono-dai (stand for small objets) is made in Satsuma porcelain. Satsuma pottery is a more than four hundred year old tradition. Like many others, that tradition was born at the end of the 16th century, after Japanese warlords came back from Korea with Korean potters and their techniques to be used to make ware, especially tea ceremony ware, for their private use. After having been exposed at the Paris International Exhibition in 1867, Satsuma pottery became a popular export to Europe.
The elegantly designed three foot stand is decorated in gold enamel, with a flower motif made into a kamon (family crest). The beautifully crackled creamy glaze is a wonderful feature of Satsuma porcelain. The top is covered with green velvet. The stand was made in the Iso Oniwayaki kiln located in that city, in the southernmost part of the island of Kyushu, birthplace of Satsuma pottery.
