A traveler’s pack of wood and bamboo lattice capped with a silver hat creates ths nostalgic Koro incense burner by Miura Chikusen usng colors reminiscent of Baizan-yaki. It is 5 inches (13 cm) tall and in excellent condition enclosed in a period kiri-wood box.
Miura Chikusen I (1854-1915) made a name for himself as a strict adherent to and supplier of Sencha tea wares in Kyoto; one of the most important artists in the country for that genre. He studied under Takahashi Dohachi from the age of 13, before establishing his own studio in 1883. He was a feature in the literati community of Kyoto and was well known also as a painter, poet and calligraphist. His porcelains were considered of the highest grade throughout the Meiji era, and are still highly collectable today. The kiln continues, currently under the management of the fifth generation.
