Fine Pair of Large Antique Meiji Japanese Satsuma Pottery Vases by Hattori (Code 2024)
The vases are signed to the base for Hattori and also marked satsuma in Kanji. Hattori pieces are reasonably scarce and always of a high quality. Hattori concentrated on painterly styles with washes to provide naturalistic colour and extensive use of gilt, all as can be seen here. This factory was also noted for the first use of cobalt blue on satsuma ware.
Good examples, some gilt wear especially to the tops of the shoulders where the patterns are rubbed and around the bases. This due to handling and cleaning over the years and common on satsuma of this type. Fine crazing to the bodies as expected.
