Massive 18” high Japanese Meiji period “cong” form Satsuma earthenware vase finely decorated on the four rectangular sides in polychrome enamel and gilt highlights with vertical scenes of figures in landscapes featuring the four seasons. The base holds a square four-character “respectfully made by Ryuzan” mark. Circa 1900. 18” high, 7 1/2" square; weight: 17 lbs. Very good overall condition with some typical wear to the overglaze pigments and gilt, particularly at the rim. There are a few minor gilt touch ups. There is an old hairline crack across the foot. It appears that many years ago, the base was covered with a thin film that is now flaking off. From the estate of a Tucson, Arizona physician. His collection was acquired from prominent galleries in San Francisco in the 1970s.
