LARGE PAIR OF JAPANESE SATSUMA VASES
REALLY LOVELY PAIR OF LARGE, SQUARE SECTION, SATSUMA VASES. THEY ARE A TRUE PAIR WHICH WHEN DISPLAYED OFFER SIMILAR SCENES HAVING BEEN DESIGNED TO COMPLIMENT ONE ANOTHER. YOU HAVE FOUR CHOICES OF SCENES TO DISPLAY SIMPLY BY TURNING THEM AND MATCHING UP THE PATTERNS.

GOOD CONDITION - THE VASES HAVE NO CHIPS, CRACKS, OR, RESTORATION. THERE IS SOME RUBBING TO THE GILDING AT THE TOP AND BOTTOM HOWEVER ON THE SCALE OF THINGS IT IS NOT MUCH. SMALL CHIP TO ONE WOOD STAND.

THESE ARE SUBSTANTIAL VASES AT APPROXIMATELY 30 CMS TALL. 35 CMS WHEN ON THEIR WOODEN STANDS. PLEASE SEE THE SIZE WHEN COMPARED TO A STANDARD SIZE WINE BOTTLE.

BOTH VASES ARE SIGNED UNDERNEATH FOR THE REKNOWNED MAKER 'HOHODA'. THE QUALITY OF THE HAND DECORATION IS VERY GOOD INDEED BOTH IN DESIGN AND EXECUTION.

MEIJI PERIOD 1868 TO 1912

WOULD MAKE A SUPER ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION OF SATSUMA POTTERY, OR, IDEAL FOR THE INTERIOR DECORATOR HAVING MANY COLOURS IN THE DECORATION.

MY AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHY IS NOT DOING JUSTICE TO THIS PAIR OF VASES. I THINK THEY ARE MUCH MORE ATTRACTIVE THAN MY PHOTOS SHOW.

UK DELIVERY INCLUDED. OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS PLEASE ENQUIRE.

PAIR LARGE SATSUMA POTTERY VASES
A GOOD QUALITY VERY DECORATIVE PAIR OF JAPANESE VASES. ALL THE FINE DECORATION ON THESE VASES IS DONE BY HAND.
ONE SIDE IS DECORATED WITH LADIES AND THE OTHER WITH GENTLEMEN. THEY ARE SET IN RURAL LANDSCAPES AND THE GENTLEMEN HAVE BIRDS IN FLIGHT OVERHEAD. THE TWO SCENES ARE SEPARATED BY FEARSOME LION MASKS WITH GLARING EYES AND OPEN JAWS! THE SCENES ARE ENHANCED WITH LOTS OF GILDING, SOME FLAT AND SOME RAISED GIVING A VERY INTERESTIG EFFECT.

THE VASES VARY VERY SIGHTLY IN DIMENSION AS GENERALLY FOUND WITH HAND MADE WARES. HOWEVER THEY MEASURE APPROXIMATELY 10 1/2 INCHES, 26.5 CMS TALL AND A FURTHER INCH WHEN ON THE WOODEN STANDS. AT THE SHOULDERS THEY ARE ABOUT 5 1/4 INCHES, 13.3 CMS SQUARE PLUS THE LION MASKS.

THE WOODEN STANDS ARE SUPPLIED WITH THE VASES AND THOUGH THEY HAVE LOSSES TO EACH ARE STILL USABLE.

IT IS UNUSUAL TO FIND SATSUMA VASES OF THIS SIZE WITH THE GILDING IN SUCH GOOD CONDITION. NO CHIPS, CRACKS OR RESTORATION.


DELIVERY TO MOST OF UK INCLUDED. OVERSEAS PLEASE ENQUIRE

PAIR JAPANESE MEIJI PERIOD SATSUMA VASES
GOOD PAIR OF HEXAGONAL SATSUMA VASES WITH NO CHIPS, CRACKS OR RESTORATION THOUGH THERE IS A LITTLE RUBBING TO THE GILDING ON THE BLUE BACKGROUND COLOUR AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS.

THE PANELS ARE BEAUTIFULLY HAND DECORATED IN RICH ENAMELS AND GILT WHICH IS RAISED IN PLACES TO ADD TO THE TEXTURE OF THE PATTERN. MARVELOUS!

TWO DECORATIVE PANELS WITH GENTLEMEN WARRIORS ON ONE SIDE AND LADIES ON THE OTHER.

VASES ARE AOUT 9.5 INCHES HIGH AND 4.5 INCHES ACROSS THE HEXAGONAL BODIES

RARE PAIR JAPANESE IMARI PLANTERS
GOOD PAIR OF MEIJI PERIOD JAPANESE IMARI PLANTERS OF RARE DIAMOND SHAPE, RIBBED BODY, AND SUPPORTED ON FOUR FEET MOULDED AS MASKS.

ONE PLANTER IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THE OTHER HAS BEEN HAIRLINE CRACKED. EITHER STAND PLANT POTS INSIDE OR I SUGGEST LINE WITH POND LINER BEFORE ADDING COMPOST FOR PLANTING. I DO NOT CONSIDER IT WORTHWHILE GETTING THE HAIRLINE RESTORED AS IT IS MAINLY VISIBLE ON THE INSIDE AND WILL NOT SHOW IN USE. ON THE OUTSIDE UNLESS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IT ITS HARD TO SEE AMONGST THE BUSY DECORATION. OFCOURSE IF YOU PREFER YOU COULD HAVE IT PROFESSIONALY RESTORED.

THIS SHAPE IS RARE. IN MY 30 YEARS OF DEALING I CANNOT RECOLLECT SEEING IT BEFORE.

ATTRACTIVE SIZE, MEASURE APPROXIMATELY 11 INCHES X 9 1/2 INCHES AND 6 INCHES HIGH

UK POST AND PACKING INCLUDED. OTHER AREAS PLEASE ENQUIRE
This item has been sold





PAIR JAPANESE IMARI JARDINIERE PLANTERS
GOOD FACING PAIR OF JARDINIERS DECORATED IN TYPICAL IMARI COLOURS. EACH PLANTER HAS A BULBOUS FORM WITH AN UPRIGHT TOP RIM. THERE IS NO DAMAGE TO THE PLANTERS THOUGH ONE HAS A FACTORY FIRING FLAW WHERE THE UPRIGHT TOP JOINS THE BULBOUS BODY. THIS IS A LONG HORIZONTAL LINE WITH A SHORT ONE GOING OFF AT AN ANGLE TO IT. THIS DOES NOT DETRACT FROM THE DECORATIVE NATURE OF THE PAIR AND I MENTION ONLY FOR ACCURACY.

HEIGHT 8 1/2 INCHES 21.5 CMS

POST AND PACKING INCLUDED TO MOST UK DESTINATIONS

This item has been sold





SCARCE AND SUBSTANTIAL PAIR IMARI SQUARE SECTION VASES
DECORATED IN TYPICAL IMARI COLOURS ARE THIS SUPER PAIR OF JAPANESE VASES, HAND DECORATED WITH BASKETS OF FLOWERS TO THE FRONT AND BACK PANELS. TO THE OPPOSING SIDES ARE STYLISED GARDENS WITH BRIDGE, FLOWERS AND BIRDS IN FLIGHT.
I AM NOT A POTTER BUT UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS TECHNICALLY MUCH MORE DIFFICULT TO MAKE AND FIRE VASES OF THIS SHAPE THAN THE USUAL ROUND ONES WHICH IS PROBABLY WHY THEY ARE MUCH RARER THAN THE NORM.

CONDITION REPORT - ONE VASE IS PERFECT
ONE VASE HAS RESTORATION ONLY AT THE TOP WHERE A LARGE 'BITE' HAS BROKEN OUT AND ITSELF HAS BROKEN IN TWO. ALL HAS NOW BEEN PROFESSIONALLY RESTORED INTO PLACE.

HEIGHT A LITTLE UNDER 12 INCHES 30 CMS
4 1/2 INCHES 11.5 SQUARE AT TOP
5 3/4 INCHES, 14.5 CMS SQUARE ON SHOULDERS
4 INCHES, 10 CMS SQUARE AT BASES

THESE WOULD MAKE A GREAT ADDITION TO ANY IMARI COLLECTION. VERY DECORATIVE. THE BIZ!!!

DELIVERY TO MOST UK ADRESSES INCLUDED
OTHER DESTINATIONS PLEASE ENQUIRE

LOVELY FACING SCENES TO BOTH SIDES OF THESE SATSUMA POTTERY VASES. THE SCENES ARE ENTIRELY HAND DECORATED WITH CONSIDERABLE SKILL AND DEPICT LADIES IN A GARDEN AND LAKELAND LANDSCAPE. ON THE LAKE ARE NUMEROUS SMALL SAILING BOATS. PERHAPS A REGATTA IS IN PROGRESS? THE LADIES GARMENTS ARE ENHANCED WITH RICH GILDING AND THE DECORATIVE SCENES ARTISTICALLY FRAMED BY THE TREE BRANCHES.
THE DECORATIVE PICTURES ARE SET INTO A DARK BLUE GROUND WITH RAISED GILDING.
