Pair Antique Meiji Japanese Hakusan Satsuma Pottery Vases with Mountain Scenes (Code 1466)
A pair of late 19th century Japanese Satsuma pottery vases. They are painted with mountainous scenes with rural houses using extensive and very fine gilt work. Each has a rectangular panel delineated in gilt featuring ladies in traditional dress with large multi coloured floral heads. The vases are of cylindrical forms with high shoulders. The shoulders have received special attention with particularly fine pattern work executed on each. The bases are signed for Hakusan which also translates as White Mountain, a volcanic mountain and one of the three 'holy mountains' of Japan. The region of Hyogo has 50 mountains of which Haku is one, and this of course fits well with the mountainous scenery on these vases. The vases also come with hardwood stands which look of contemporary period.
Good order with the usual fine crazing associated with these pieces. Wear is very restrained for the age. A few light surface scratches. Some damage to the hardwood stands.
