An exquisite landscape circles the body of this voluminous ballister form by Eiraku Zengoro XV (Shozen) enclosed in the original signed wooden box. It is 15 inches (38 cm) tall, 7-1/2 inches (19 cm) diameter and in excellent condition.
Eiraku Shozen (1879-1932) was the backbone of the family tradition after the passing of his father in 1909, and worked tirelessly to maintain the family reputation. His works were preferred by the 12th generation head of Omote Senkei Seisai, and were also a favorite for use by the Prince Sadaaki of the imperial family in the Omiya Gosho palace.
