4-sided Satsuma vase - Kinkozan - Meiji Period
A most uncommon 4-sided Satsuma vase with broad shoulders and tapered body. Delicate gilt brocading along the neck and foot provide dramatic contrast to the glistening, silver ground with overlapping flowers brilliantly carved overall. Against this rare ground are male and female warriors perfectly-rendered in soft pastels and gilt, each one garbed in full regalia with weapons in hand and slung from the waist. Formal Kinkozan scroll-seal on base. Height, 10". Meiji Period.
