Japanese Porcelain Vase Meiji Period Makuzu Kozan
The vase is of a classic bottle form with baluster body and short neck. It was decorated with underglaze white magnolia blossom on a pleasant celadon background.

Miyagawa Kozan (18421916) was one of the most established and collected Japanese ceramist from Meiji Period. Commonly known as Makuzu Kozan, which also appears as the signature on his work, his originally birth name was Miyagawa Toranosuke.

The masterly details of the brush strokes, the expertly employment of gradient of color, created an image that is of signature work from Kozan studio. The vase is signed in blue script within a square seal, made by Makuzu Kozan. 7.6"h x 4"dia.
