MEIJI JAPANESE SATSUMA TEAPOT MASTERPIECE W MONKEY CAT. Incredible miniature Japanese Meiji satsuma teapot with a begging monkey and and a warrior cat. Main Panel has a monkey begging for food or possibly his life from a Samurai while a cat warrior with a flag with a peach in it looks on.Incredible detail and far more exotic than the pictures show. I particularly like the detail on the edge of the lid.
Flowers that are split in two are painted on both halves so the lid "fits" in only one way. Very unusual piece at 2.5 tall its a master grade piece of Meiji art. Circa 1890 and in excellent condition. The item "MEIJI JAPANESE SATSUMA TEAPOT MASTERPIECE W MONKEY CAT" is in sale since Friday, October 8, 2010.
