Offered for purchase is a beautiful American Satsuma Enameled Floral Motif Bowl (Signed "M.M.K."/Dated 1915) hand-painted/decorated in the US or Canada as part of the Arts & Crafts movement.

The design for this bowl is by Maud Mason and is found in the July 1912 edition of Keramic Studio Magazine. Keramic Studio Magazine was a monthly publication for the amateur porcelain/china decorator which provided designs, detailed instructions on porcelain/china decorating, as well as articles and photographs of competitions and displays between various china decorating studios and clubs. The magazine was first published in May 1899 and continued into the late-1920’s. We can provide photocopies of the page from the publication with the design of this item with your purchase if specifically requested.

The bowl is in excellent condition... no chips, cracks or repairs, although there are some surface scratches and wear from age and use. Typical with American Satsuma, there is general crazing and some darkening of the porcelain. The bowl is approximately 6 inches in diameter and 3.25 inches tall. The bottom is marked as indicated in the pictures.

You may ask, what is American Satsuma? During World War I, there was a limited supply of porcelain from Europe for the North American china decorators. Porcelain and pottery blanks from Japan were more readily available and so were utilized by the china decorators during that time. The pottery from Japan was heavy and as pottery, tended to craze over time, which also lends itself to staining very easily. Keramic Studio Magazine often had designs and instructions specifically for American Satsuma to assist the amateur artists on how to handle the pottery best. Most American Satsuma decorations are heavily enameled, and combined with the crazing of the pottery, result in some stunning Arts & Crafts hand-painted items.
