Stoneware moon flask, decorated on one side with three pieces of cloth hanging in the wind from a flowering cherry tree (the cherry blossoms in tiny specks of silver, the clouds done in gold); on the other side with peonies that are covered against late spring snow (the snow on the cover and the veins of the leaves in silver, the outlines of the peony petals in gold). On the rounded side an irregular pattern in tea dust glaze, sprinkled with cherry blossoms in silver. The neck and foot are glazed iron red and are decorated with silver karakusa. Bottom with underglaze impressed mark Taizan and with overglaze signature Dainihon Taizan sei. Stoneware with creamy crackled glaze and polychrome enamels, iron red, silver and gold. Japan, mid Meiji era.
Height 7.5 inches (19 cm), width ca. 6 inches (15,2 cm).
Gold somewhat rubbed, silver oxidized but easily restorable. Very good condition.

The Takahashi family started producing for the export market (mainly USA) in 1872. The kiln was closed in 1894 under the 9th generation Taizan. Since both body and decoration of the flask are marked Taizan, it can be safely accepted that this flask stems from before 1894. After the closing of the kiln, the last Taizan occasionally seemed to have decorated blank objects from other manufactures, among whom Kinkozan.
