Ito Tozan I (1846-1920), a fine kyoyaki dish with bamboo. A Kyoto Satsuma stoneware plate decorated with bamboo in overglaze gosu blue enamel bordered in black in Ito Tozan I’s strong graphic style, against the classic creamy crackled kyoyaki glaze. Ito Tozan I was the last of only five potters to be appointed as Teishitsu Gigeiin (Imperial Household Artist) in 1917, three years before his death. Mark: three character “Tozan zo” in black enamel to the base. Origin: Kyoto, Japan. Period: Meiji Period (1868–1912), circa 1890s. Size: 18.6cm diameter, 2.75cm high. Condition: good, but with some stacking wear to the enamel decoration (no losses, just wear) from normal use. SOLD
