Incense burner


Item code : EDc108

Size 11 x 7 cm
Date Meiji (1868 - 1912)


A Satsuma koro- incense burner. The ovoid body is painted with enamel and gilding on a cracked and gold-stippled glaze. Cartouches with depictions of a tit on a branch of a blossoming cherry tree decorates the front, image of children playing games on the reverse. Both images painted in minute details typical for Yabu Meizan's artistry. The lattice metal lid with a basket pattern is decorated with three swallows.


Perfect, signed at the bottom.
