The satsuma censer is richly decorated with elaborate panels of warrior, beauties and bodhisattvas.

An ovoid body sits atop three substantial feet. The body has a fine base crackle glaze with three different designs painted over glaze enamels and extensive gilding. One panel has a group of fighting samurai, another of beauties along a river, and the third has seated meditating bodhisattvas. The pierced lid is heavily gilded and topped by a chrysanthemum finial.

The base is glazed. There are two marks on the base. One is a cross within a round circle, known as the kamon (family crest) of Satsuma's ruling Shimazu clan. The cartouche below has two characters.

3” (7.6 cm) diameter x 4 ¾” (12.1 cm) tall. Weighs 8.5 oz (240 g)

CONDITION

There are no breaks or cracks. The enamels are in excellent condition with only light wear to the gilding around the final and edge of the lid, and the borders along the shoulder and bottom by the feet.
