Offered for purchase is a beautiful American Satsuma Enameled Wisteria Design Vase (Signed "Mearle Beatrice Warner"/Dated 1923) hand-painted/decorated in the US as part of the Arts & Crafts movement.

Mearle Beatrice Warner (Mrs. George R. Warner) was a member of the exclusive Atlan Ceramics Arts Club from 1917 until 1921 According to “Collector’s Encyclopedia of Pickard China” by Alan B. Reed, the Atlan Club’s “motto was ‘Patience, Persistence and Progress’”, as can be seen in the exquisite detail and precision of the decoration. Please note, the Altan mark was only applied to items intended as exhibition pieces.

The vase is in excellent condition... no chips, cracks or repairs, although there are some minor surface scratches and gold wear on the rim from age and use. The vase is approximately 7 inches tall and 5.25 inches in diameter at the widest. 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.
