Click on image above for more views


This is a rare and wonderfully crafted set of 5 Satsuma pottery (faience) wine cups, each with a 19 petal chrysanthemum shape. These earthenware pieces date from the late Edo or early Meiji period. Each piece has gilt to outline and express the flower's petals and the interior of each cup has a design to represent the interior of the flower. The bottom of each cup is signed - 4 are signed "Jukan Sei" and 1 is signed "Satsuma-yaki" and "Jukan Sei". Each cup measures approximately 2 3/8" high by 2" in diameter at the top rim and a footrim of 1 1/4" in diameter. The cups are in very good condition, though one has a age an crack extending about 7/8" down from the top rim. The cups also show varing degrees of discoloration (some darkening) from age and use. As a note of interest, Gyokuzan - also spelled Giokozan and Gyokusen - is the artistic name of Chin Jukan XII who, in 1858 was appointed head of the Government factory at Nawashiro-gawa. ...... $1450.00
