Antique Large Japanese Satsuma Pottery Charger Figures in Landscape - Fuku Mark (Code 2870)
An interesting and very large Japanese pottery charger. It is in the Satsuma style with figures in a landscape surrounded by a patterned border. It is of earthenware body with intentional crackle glaze. The dominant green is unusual for Satsuma and it is also marked with a Fuku (happiness) mark rather than a traditional Satsuma mark. The glaze is almost majolica in tone over the greens which you can perhaps make out in the reflected light areas in the images. It is possibly a hybrid piece combining Satsuma painting with some of the Arita styling, the size is certainly much larger than usual. Meiji period and large enough to stand out even in a larger room or setting.
NOTE - Due to size/weight this item is only available to ship outside the UK mainland by special arrangement.
Some of the crazing is very heavy and can be felt with a finger nail and has darkened significantly. Some glaze rubbing at spots around the rim, probably from the item being in a metal hanger at some point in the past. Wear is very minor.
