This is a striking Japanese Satsuma Flask Vase from the Meiji Period! The artistry is quite stunning. Two main panels are bordered by a brilliant pairing of golden tones and deep blue violets, with gorgeous flowers scattered in their midst. The first panel depicts a peacock surrounded by pink blossoms and bamboo - a Japanese garden paradise. The second panel depicts the same garden with a pair of flying birds in the pale beige sky. An additional pair of golden creatures with rings in their mouths add imperial flair at the neck of the vase. This shape is most unusual and would enhance any collection.
