From our Japanese Collection, a superb Kinkozan satsuma vase, Meiji Period 1868-1912, featuring two different panels of elegant ladies, children, and birds in flight, all reserved against landscapes of flowing wisteria, separated by panels of gilt-painted cobalt blue. The vase is fairly large in height at 9 1/2 inches tall, though it's width is of slender ovoid shape. It is marvelously painted with exquisitely fine detail and realism, definitely one of the best painted satsuma vases we have come across in awhile. There is a signed Kinkozan cartouche to the recessed base, along with an old original satsuma sticker.
Size and Condition: 9 1/2 inches tall. Perfect condition. Perhaps some random rubbing to the enamels and gilt, though frankly, we just say that here in an abundance of caution and conservatism, as we really don't see anything of note worth flagging.
