Pair of Antique Satsuma Vases Meiji Period. The bodies are disk shaped with a slender neck and a widely flaring rim. Each are profusely decorated with colorful flowers, leaves and butterflies heightened with rich gilding.
The lower neck features radiating fans consisting of highly detailed geometric devises. They are signed with identical Japanese characters within a rectangle. I have not been able to pin down the maker, but the mark does show some resemblance to the mark used by the Beizan studio.
The artistry of these vases is of the highest quality and I believe the photos do not give their beauty the justice they deserve. Size : 2 1/2 (6.35 cm) Tall // 4 1/2 (11.43 cm) Wide. From a non-smoking, pet-free home. Please see photos and condition report above.
