Antique Japanese Satsuma Meiji Angular Jar with Metal Lid. A sizable Japanese export Satsuma jar complete with metalwork alloyed lid. Composed imagery drapes across hexagonal 6-sided walling; alternating classic Meiji era export depictions of village life placed between panels embellished with floral elements, nature, and birds.Quilted geometric forms intertwine with complimentary elements placed within the enameled top which sits upon the lushly depicted walls. While the gilt loss can be refinished for a relatively low sum, the price has been marginally reduced to accompany this possibility for the next owner; or allowing the frugal enthusiast to acquire an otherwise excellently representative example. The antique status brings accompanying wear on this angular vessel in the form of noticeable gilt loss sustained to the lip, and some spots of enamel wearing on the borders (both aspects highlighted in detail) - yet the piece is structurally sound without having chips, breaks, hairlines, or cracks; and with focal points of the enameled depictions/artistry remaining still well preserved. 8.25 height w/lid from foot to finale (20.95cm), 7 in diameter diagonally at crosspoint (17.78cm).
