Ito Tozan I (1846-1920), a fine kyoyaki dish with wheat heads. A Kyoto Satsuma stoneware dish decorated with fat wheat heads in overglaze green enamels and iron red 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: impressed round two character “Tozan” mark to the base. Origin: Kyoto, Japan. Period: Meiji Period (1868–1912), circa 1890s. Size: 18.4cm diameter, 2.75cm high. Condition: good but with some stacking wear to the enamel decoration (no loss, just wear) from normal use. SOLD
