Japanese antique Arita porcelain vase from the Meiji Period decorated in the Imari palette with painted geese trees blossom kikko mons 19th C 24.5 cm

 A Japanese Arita export porcelain baluster shaped vase with an unusual inwardly tapered foot foot that sometimes appears on 17th and 18th century Japanese Edo porcelain but, this vase we believe dates from the late 19th century. The vase has been painted in peach, iron red, manganese purple, copper green and antimony yellow enamels over an intense under-glaze cobalt blue structural ground.

The main design is painted in a continuous landscape with two large two large stylised trees filled with colourful flowers or blossom. The sky has highly stylised cloud scrolls in straight geometric shapes. Each side has two geese, one in flight the other resting on the ground, which has flowers, grasses and a small stream.

The bases of the trees have six interlinked hexagonal mons with stylised floral motifs These are referred to as Kikkō mon or tortoise shell crests (亀甲紋). The lowest section of the vase has a deep underglaze blue lower border with floral shaped panels or cartouches. 

The shoulder on the vase is decorated with the blue ground that forms stylised cloud collars or lappets, with enamelled butterflies flowers and leaves between circular floral mons. This shoulder border is painted in such a clever manner that it appears to form part of the tree canopy painted around the vase. The rim has a red diamond diaper border. The inside of the rim is also decorated with flowers and ribbon scrolls.

The underside of the vase is unmarked, but this vase is Imari ware or Imari yaki (伊万里焼 ) which was traditionally made around Arita in the former Hizen Province, (now the Saga prefecture) of North western Kyushu, in Japan. This beautifully decorative vase dates from the fourth quarter of the 19th century during the Meiji period (1868-1912) circa 1890. 

It is in good antique condition. There are no cracks however, it has had an old Kintsugi repair to a chip to the foot. There is some wear to the gilding. Please see the images.

This is a highly collectable and very decorative item and great for display on its own as a statement piece or as part of a collection antique Japanese, Oriental porcelain or Imari-yaki.
