Sold thank you.
A fine antique Japanese Satuma teapot from the Meiji era. One scene is that of a golden pagoda and temple with cherry blossoms and having Mt. Fuji in the background. Lots of gold highlights and all very finely detailed. The rim of the teapot lid and body are outlined in black, highlighted with gold gilt. The reverse side of the pot is signed Shisan with a mon against a typical Satsuma creamy crackle finish.
It stands 5 1/2 inches tall, 7 1/3 widest and about 4 inch diameter. There are no chips, cracks, scratches or repairs.
A beautiful signed example of antique Satsuma teapot, hard to find.
(Note. The close-ups are larger than actual but the details are still there. In the Mt Fuji close-up, the camera lens lost the resolution on the cherry blossoms for some reason. )
