Offered for purchase is a beautiful American Satsuma Enameled Dandelion Design Vase (Signed "M.W."/Dated 1912) hand-painted/decorated in the US or Canada as part of the Arts & Crafts movement. The vase is in excellent condition… no chips, cracks or repairs, although there are some surface scratches, general crazing and minor staining as is typical of American Satsuma, and wear from age and use. There is also a surface chip under the paint in the leaf design which may have been done during decorating, but is not noticeable when displayed (it looks much worse in the pictures than in person). The vase is approximately 7.5 inches tall and 4 inches in diameter. The bottom is marked as indicated in the pictures.

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. As the pottery from Japan was heavy with a crackle or crazed finish, it also was susceptible to staining. 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.
