Description
Satsuma ware is a type of Japanese pottery originating from Satsuma Province, in the southern region of Kyushu island. Satsuma ware is habitually divided into two distinct categories: the original plain dark clay early Satsuma, known as Ko-Satsuma and produced in Satsuma from around 1600, and the elaborately decorated export Satsuma, known as Kyo-Satsuma, whose ivory-bodied pieces began to be produced during the 19th 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 have managed to make Satsuma ware one of the most recognized and profitable export products of the Meiji period. This stunning lidded Satsuma Ware incense burner has been hand decorated with the naturalistic figures of playful hares, among a countryside background of flowers and plants, The enamelled and gilded incense burner stands on three feet, both handles are decorated with an intricate naturalistic pattern and its openwork lid is crowned by the figure of an animated dragon-lion on the top. There is a seal on the underside. - (RL.1114)
