Large Antique Japanese Satsuma Vase Meiji Period 19th Century Floor Vase Geisha
This is a stunning antique Japanese Satsuma vase from the Meiji period, likely late 19th century. Standing tall at 18, this large vase is a lovely example of Japanese Satsuma art. Delicately hand painted over a crackled base, this vase features Geisha figures with a flora & fauna motif in light pinks, greens and blue tones with elaborate gilding.

Absolutely beautiful in person, photos simply do not do it justice, a true work of art. Crazing and wear commensurate with age, no chips or cracks. Loss to gilding, signature worn. Dimensions: 18" tall, 9" wide. Satsuma ware (Satsuma-yaki) is a type of Japanese pottery originally from Satsuma Province, southern Kysh.

Today, it can be divided into two distinct categories: the original plain dark clay early Satsuma (Ko-Satsuma) made in Satsuma from around 1600, and the elaborately decorated export Satsuma (Ky-Satsuma) -bodied pieces which began to be produced in the nineteenth century in various Japanese cities. By adapting their gilded polychromatic enamel overglaze designs to appeal to the tastes of western consumers, manufacturers of the latter made Satsuma ware one of the most recognized and profitable export products of the Meiji period.
