As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to offer this finely painted Meiji period 1868-1912 Satsuma vase in the manner of Kinkozan but signed Nikko , the cobalt blue gilt decorated borders are very finely executed and very much in the style of fine Kinkozan artists , the first of the two main panels depict Bijin and Children in a tranquil garden setting , the reverse depicts Samurai warriors at rest in a woodland scene , once again both panels painted in exquisite detail and reminiscent of the style of Kinkozan artist , Nikko is recorded as being a retailer of ceramics in Nagasaki and may well have commissioned this piece, whoever painted it it is certainly a fine example of Meiji period Satsuma wares that due to some minor gilt rubbing now falls into a budget that may add to or inspire the start of a future collection of Japanese ceramics .
