Golden Age Antiques
This is a rare and large, top quality Satsuma Jar by Yabu Meizan. The beautiful Meiji era lid is not original to the piece. The gold detail and painting are beautiful. It is stoutly potted and measures 9 inches tall by 8 1/2 inches wide. This piece is not signed but at on time it was. The original signature has been covered up by an excellent restoration to a drill hole. The price reflects these flaws and even so, it still is a fabulous Meiji era display piece.
