As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to offer this most unusual Late Meiji (1868-1912) early Taisho period (1912-1926 ), globular vase stemming from the highly regarded Imperial studios of Miyagawa Makuzu Kozan 1840-1916, on this occasion likely to have been potted by Kozan II (1859-1940). The globular vessel has an all over highly fired glazed finish for use as a flower vessel containing water, the exterior is simply decorated with a kingfisher upon a sprig of bamboo, the vibrant enamels fired to a fabulous contrast against the brick red merging into grey body, the rim fitted with a carrying handle. The underside of the vase bears the Kozan gourd seal signature, a most appealing example of works from one of the leading Imperial studios of the period.
