Lovely pair of Japanese Satsuma ceramic bottle vases with slightly lustrous Chrysanthemum blossoms and raised dot decoration. Unmarked, circa Meiji period (1868-1912) . Measures about 7in height x 5.5in diameter. Condition: variation in the color and texture of the dots which could be the result of wear or just natural variation in a hand glazed object. In either case does not detract in the least, they are lovely!
