Figural and landscape designs only started on Satsuma ware after 1850, which this piece has. When Kyoto ware really became popular in 1870, it started to be marked on the base. This piece isn't marked.This is one of rare times when being unmarked is good, as it makes this vase an early piece of Kyoto ware. Small chip on inside of the lid where it goes down into the pot unseen. Minor loss to Shisa mane. I was told about this piece before I acquired it, and was planning to get restoration.
But when I saw it, it was minimal and unnoticeable, so I decided to leave it completely honest. Ornate wooden stand undamaged, and a high quality one, crisply carved and smooth.
An expensive item on its own. It has a white character mark on the top and bottom. The vase is 55cm high without the wooden stand. Unfairly, Chinese art has always been considered the poorer cousin to Japanese art.However, Japanese art is deemed superior quality and higher status.
