A fine porcelain vase with two carps painted by Makuzu Kozan, also known as Miyagawa Kozan (1842-1916). The vase comes with a tomobako inscribed, signed, and sealed by the artist. Kozan's family originally produced fine tea ceramics for the imperial court during the end of the Edo period. During the Meiji period, Kozan moved his kiln from Kyoto to Yokohama to produce export ware. In 1876, Kozan exhibited his work at the Philadelphia World Exposition and his name was known internationally. By this time, Kozan developed a carving method in ceramics that defined Makuzu wares. Age: Meiji-Taisho Period (early 20th century). Size: Height 8.5" Diameter 3.9"
