BRIEF HISTORY OF SATSUMA WARE: Satsuma Ware is a type of Japanese earthenware pottery. It originated in the late 16th century, during the Azuchi-Momoyama period. The best known type of Satsuma ware has a soft, ivory-colored, crackled glaze with elaborate polychrome and gold or gilded decoration. In 1867 the Shimazu clan independently entered some pieces of Satsuma ware in the Great Exhibition, Paris, France. People in Europe were enchanted and soon the name of Satsuma became known throughout the world. After its display at the Great Exhibition in Paris 1867, it proved popular as an export to Europe.

One of the features of Satsuma ware is the great variety of different types of pottery which have been and are still being produced. There are six individual wares of a traditional lineage, namely Katano, Ryumonji, Naeshirogawa, Nishi-mochida, Hirasa, and Tanegashima. In addition White Satsuma Ware, Black Satsuma Ware and pieces of porcelain make up the three main groups of products being made in the area.

White Satsuma ware has a faint yellow ground and is a plain glazed pottery which is covered all over with fine crazing. Colors, enamels and gold-work are then applied.

Black Satsuma ware is a colored pottery done with black, dark brown or amber glazes and has a darkish brown base color because of the iron-rich clay which is used in its production.

CONDITION:  Very fine condition! There are no damages, hairlines or restorations. The roughness seen in the photo on the foot-rim is where someone had applied a gauze padding to prevent surface scratching to a table.
