Item:202683843286ANTIQUE 19thC JAPANESE MEIJI (1868-1912) SIGNED SATSUMA NAVETTE BASKETWEAVE BOWLDescription: A finely decorated antique novelty Japanese Satsuma bowl of large proportions, dating to the late 19th or early 20th Century Meiji Period. The inner surface is decorated with a highly detailed scene of two pheasants standing on a rocky outcrop with a waterfall, surrounded by a multitude of colourful flowers. The outer surface, with textured basketweave design is equally pleasing with blossoming trees and flowers.The base of the bowl, with five unglazed firing areas, is signed with a two character mark in gold below a shimazu crest.Painstakingly hand painted with beautiful detailed decoration in gilt and various polychrome enamels (moriage), the fine crackling (Kannyu) of the soft, creamy glaze is typical and was used more to give richness and depth to the colours. The enamel and gilding is applied on top of the glaze so that it stands proud of the surface. Basic information:Satsuma pottery dates back to the 16th century and is still produced today in southern Japan around the Kagoshima region. The distinguishing features of Satsuma ceramics are they have an ivory, creamy or off-white and sometime beige appearance. The pottery is then hand painted with brightly coloured enamels, gold and silver, in fine, intricate designs with careful attention to detail. The finest details were painted using a single rat’s hair. This allowed the painter to create lifelike expressions on faces and exquisite detailing on robes. Most Satsuma artists decorated them freehand with traditional Japanese motifs and patterns such as foliage and flowers, landscapes, real and mythical birds and human figures engaged in ceremonial, military, or domestic activities. The thin translucent glaze with its applied design decoration deliberately ends up with a crackled finish.
