Guest Book

A magnificent sake saucer made in the kinrande style of porcelain by a master of the craft: Eiraku Wazen (1823-1896).

Eiraku Wazen was a twelfth generation ceramist. His father Hozen (1795-1854) was the first to use the name Eiraku. He was successful in mastering Chinese Ming dynasty porcelain techniques, especially Kinrande (a combination of underglaze blue and overglaze red and gold decoration), in vogue in Kyoto at that time. His son Wazen, whom he instructed, was a skillful calligrapher and painter.

The saucer is beautifully decorated in minute details with motifs of kirin (mythical creature) inside it, and fish underneath of it.

Kindly inquire if you have some questions.

The saucer is in very good condition with only very little enamel loss on the rim. It is signed “Dai-Nippon Eiraku-zo” (Made in great Japan by Eiraku). The saucer will be shipped in the box it came with. The box bears the Eiraku seal and is authentic, but maybe not the original one.
Dimensions: 10.8 x 2.2 cm (4.3 x 0.9 in)
