Satsuma Miniature Earthenware Vases
A pair of miniature earthenware vases produced by the Satsuma School of southern Japan. The design is polychromatic and thickly enameled with raised textured in places on each vase. The subject is of the legendary prince Yamato Takeru no Mikoto and his retainers subduing a dragon. The story itself is likely taken from the ancient tome Records of Ancient Matters. The vases date from the Meiji Period (circa late 19th Century).
The miniature earthenware vases measure 9.2 cm (3.6 inches) tall. Each vase signed on their base (薩摩焼, Satsuma-yaki) ‘Satsuma ware’ and (大日本, Dai Nippon) ‘Great Japan’. For an antique set the condition is excellent.
