SKU: J82

 

Spectacular authentic antique 19th century Meiji Period circa 1885 A.D. Japanese satsuma earthenware large planter-fish bowl.

The exterior is finely hand painted in raised enamels and gilded with

two opposing large lobed panels depicting samurais, dressed in

elaborated brocade kimonos, highlighted with gold and flanked by two

vertical panels adorned with intricate geometric designs, and finished

in raised enamel and gold. Enclosed at the top and the bottom are raised

borders adorned with intricate geometric designs, finished in raised

enamel and gold.

Please note that this is an authentic antique Japanese satsuma Fish Bowl

and not a contemporary Chinese reproduction of satsuma as are the many

on the market.

 

CONDITION: In good condition considering its age to be over 100 years,

showing its age and usage; no cracks, restorations, or repairs. The

small imperfections on the inner gold ring of the rim of the bowl look

on the images as chips as an imperfection in gold paint. Please notice

that the pictures in the listing are a part of the description of the

condition of the object.
