$1,450.00
Quantity available: 1
A lovely pair of Satsuma sake bottles in splendid condition. One bottle depicts an ornate lacquer box that has been opened to reveal a silk-wrapped noh mask of a happy old man: it is Jurojin, the God of Longevity. On the back is an open painted fan and a tobacco pouch. The happy life! The second bottle shows a peaceful country inn with a stone wall and thatched roof, a mill wheel and trees peeking over the walls; a pair of birds fly on the back. All of these scenes are rendered in highly detailed enamel colors and gilt. Each bottle is approximately 5-3/4 inches high by 3-1/2 inches wide at the widest point. Japanese, Edo Period, circa 1800. (Note: Please pardon the poor quality of my photographs; the fine details of these pieces are hard to capture, but I plan to improve my technique.)
