Why this is a
Masterpiece

The incense burner represents a large family of masterpieces which originated from the Satsuma area of southern Kyūshyū, known in Europe since the Paris exhibition in 1867. The incense burner has on the top, a seal from other famous kiln, where Satsuma style ware was produced during the Meiji period (1868-1912): the Kyoto area.

History of the Object
This is typical Satsuma ware artwork, made for export, with rich ornamental surfaces and over glaze painting on the sides. The design of the painting is very Japanese and depicts the four seasons with their well-known symbols (sakura blossom, momiji etc.), as well as the beauties of Japan. Art Museum "Riga Bourse" has a good collection of Satsuma style ware and this artwork shows the most traditional type of that kind of pottery.
