Detailed Description

Impressive pair of Satsuma imperial vases of Japanese origin coming from an important and rare private collection, in fine turquoise enamelled porcelain with all-round embossed enamel decoration symbolizing harmonious floral motifs finished and framed with splendid embroideries of pure gold, large central medallions that the large windows show a luxuriant vegetation decoration in full splendor of spring, made of bamboo trees, waterfalls, mountains, peonies, larch trees, flowering trees and birds of paradise, in typical handcrafted decorative key of Kyoto at the beginning of the century, a decoration probably inherited from the ancient Chinese designs of the eighteenth century, wisely executed and symbolizing love, marriage, happiness and the afterlife, a wonderful landscape where to immerse oneself and contemplate life. Our vases are impeccably preserved, complete with their circular bases of origin.

Era Meiji beginning of the 20th century
Height 220 cm
Satsuma Kyoto
White porcelain 5 firings

Historical reference:
The Satsuma porcelain are among the most recognizable Japanese productions and take their name from the denomination of the original production area, at the time dominion of the Shimazu clan and today the southern part of the island of Kyushu. We tend to trace the origin of Satsuma porcelain to Korean workers who arrived in the area in the middle of the sixteenth century, but it was only around 1790 that local production changed radically, becoming the best known and most exported manufacture in Japanese history.

The production of Satsuma was initially designed for domestic use, therefore coarse and poorly decorated, but thanks to the Korean potters began to experiment a particular porcelain for the tea ceremony for the Shimazu clan.
This possessed characteristics that made it his fortune: a typical cream-ivory paste covered with a slightly yellow display case that when cooked gave rise to a fine superficial craquelure.

The enamel decoration above the window was very refined and abounded in the use of gilding. The themes, often influenced by the fashions of Kyoto and the Kano school of painting, were typically floral, geometric decorations, stylized brocades, dogs, dragons and Phoenicians, while the landscapes and human figures appeared before the mid-nineteenth century .
