Yabu Meizan (1852 - 1934)
Yabu Meizan was born in Osaka, Japan in 1852. He learned to paint Satsuma in 1880 and opened a factory the same year. In the years that followed, he won many awards and held many positions of importance in his field. However, after World War I (1914), demand for Satsuma declined, causing Meizan to concentrate on the domestic market prior to his death in 1934.

This is a rare and large, top quality Satsuma Jar or vase by Yabu Meizan. We are not sure because the top is both gilded and glazed on the inside edge. The beautiful Meiji era lid is not original to the piece. The gold detail and landscape painting are beautiful. It is stoutly potted and measures 9 inches tall by 8 1/2 inches wide. This piece is not signed but at one time it was signed by Yabu Meizan. The original signature has been covered up by an excellent restoration to a drill hole. The pri...

This is a very fine pair of Japanese satsuma vases that stand just 4 1/4 inches tall. Attractive form, enamel colors and very fine details. They look like they have spent most of their lives stored in the box. One has the original sticker and both are signed. The signature looks a bit like the Kozan mark but we are not sure. Some of the larger flowers remind us of work seen on Bizan and Yabu pieces.

This is a great example of Japanese Satsuma artistry. Ths bowl was made and signed by Hankinzan. The bowl measures 5 inches across. It is an exceptional piece with extremely fine work.

While this bowl looks nearly perfect, it has about a 1 inch line that goes part way down one side that is very hard to see with out magnification. May also have a tiny fill or factory repair ...

This is a very fine and unusual Japanese Satsuma vase with relief figures. The work on this piece is highly detailed and the gold thickly applied. The Dragon and clouds are decorated with silver.
