Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is one of the best examples of a Satsuma stoneware ceramic from the end of 19th century. The exterior is decorated in enamel blue and gold with naturalistically depicted iris flowers; the interior with a brocade composition of chrysanthemums and butterflies; and on the bottom, in stylized gold kiku (chrysanthemums, imperial crest), is inscribed Tokugawa mon (crest). The signature is painted in gold: Satsuma yaki Satsuma kuni Ijun’in Toyota Masanobu

History of the Object
This bowl was made in the Satsuma area in southern Kyushu where pottery has been produced since the early 17th century. In 1598 Shimazu Yoshihiro, daimyo of the Satsuma domain (now the Kagoshima Prefecture) brought potters from Korea. Production included ware with a black lustrous glaze, (kuro Satsuma), white glaze (shiro Satsuma), richly decorated with overglaze enamels and gold (nishikide). Brocade ware became very popular in Europe in the second half of 19th century and was exported to the West in large quantities
