Chinese Han Dynasty Painted Pottery Cocoon Jar
This pottery "cocoon" jar was made over 2,000 years ago during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 8). The shape, named after its similarity to the silkworm cocoon, evolved during the late Warring States period (475 - 221 BC) and then generally died out by the middle of the Western Han. It is made from a relatively highly-fired grey pottery and has been decorated by "cold painting" a variety of different coloured pigments in a design featuring...
Tall Chinese Han Dynasty Amber Glazed Pottery Hu Jar
This large pottery jar (or "hu") of fine form was made during the Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 220). It has been coated with a greenish-amber glaze that covers the whole of the outer surface and the inside of the mouth. The slightly concave flat base remains unglazed. There are many decorative ridges and bands that surround the jar and on opposing sides at the waist are two moulded taotie ring handles. To part of the glaze on the lower body an...
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.

Large Chinese Warring States Impressed Pottery Jar (475 - 221 BC)
This large and attractive pottery jar was made during the Warring States period (475 - 221 BC). It is made from a relatively high-fired dense grey pottery. The whole of the surface of the upper body has been decorated by impressing cord into the soft clay and then incising horizontal bands as the jar was turned; a simple yet very effective method of decoration.
Height 30 cm, diameter 28 cm. Condition is very good. There a...
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 highly detailed Japanese Satsuma vase from the great Meiji artist Shizan. Look close at the images because the fine detail is as good as most of the finer pieces and easily looked over. The vase stands 4 3/4 inches tall. The vase is in excellent condition. Price is firm.
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. There are hundreds of detailed birds all with overglaze enamels. I believe it was made with the thicker mercury fired gold. 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 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 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. The piece is in very good condition will minor wear. The Artist signature is the most worn area on the piece. With magnification it can be seen that it is signed Fuzan but it is very hard to make out. I have included a similar Fuzan mark for comparison. The vase stands 8 1/2 inches tall.
This is a very large and beautiful Japanese Satsuma vase from Kinkozan. It stands is 14 1/2 inches tall. The gold work and painting are beautiful.

Of note there is a firing flaw that can be seen in the last image.

A scene with four cranes in a watery landscape extends across two of the four sides. A square gold unreadable seal is at the lower right. The opposite sides feature a beauty with a fan seated beside two scholarly men, one holding a calligraphy brush. Floral and geometric bands extend along the bottom, shou...
A remarkable blue and white jar decorated with two dragons. The jar dates from the Korean Joseon period (Richo, in Japanese; 1392-1897), probably 18th century.
The jar shows traces of old repairs made during the Japanese Edo period (1615-1868). They were made by literally stapling the broken or cracked pieces together.
In spite of these regrettable yet captivating flaws, the jar has kept its vibrant and noble aura.
Kindly inquire if you have some questions.
