A remarkable sake saucer made in the sometsuke (underglaze blue) style of porcelain by Eiraku Hozen (1795-1854).

Eiraku Hozen was an eleventh generation ceramist, the first to use the Eiraku name. He was successful in mastering Chinese Ming dynasty porcelain techniques, especially Kinrande, in vogue in Kyoto at that time. His son Wazen (1823-1896), whom he instructed, was a skillful calligrapher and painter.

Kindly inquire if you have some questions.

The saucer is masterfully decorated with motifs of trees, flowers and birds. It is in very good condition and signed. The box is latter made and attested by Eiraku Zengoro Myozen (1952-1927), the fourteenth Eiraku.
Dimensions: 12.2 x 2 cm (4.9 x 0.8 in)
