BEAUTIFUL COBALT BLUE SATSUMA GEISHA VASE. Large Meiji era Satsuma vase. Beautifully hand painted polychrome enamels depicting elegant figures, lovely geisha and small children. They converse within a flower filled garden.Distant mountains, small huts, and a serene waterway surround them. A flowering tree arches overhead with raised white flowers, tastefully completing the picture. The two panels are surrounded by a most gorgeous deep shade of cobalt blue. Of significant size, measuring approximately 12 tall. The vase has a staple repair to the rim, a feature that certain collectors (including ourselves) highly appreciate, as it is a lost art in itself.
Signed on the underside with a hand painted vermilion mark within the recessed foot. Dates to the late 1800s, and appears to have been carefully treasured for over a century by the fortunate owners. An exquisite centerpiece for the discriminating collector of fine Japanese antiques.
