Satsuma bottle vase
A Satsuma bottle vase, the neck enhanced by a visual of macaques jauntily swinging among cascading wisteria branches. Swirling brocading of iris and kiku embrace the upper section of the vase, culminating in an iconic surround of fishing boats on Lake Biwa - a signature motif for this great Satsuma master. Yabu Meizan signature cartouche on base. Height, 7". Meiji Period.
