Very Rare Japanese Satsuma Double Vase Unzan – Size 12″ x 8.5″
Satsuma ware (Satsuma-yaki) is a type of  Japanese pottery originally from Satsuma Province, southern Kyūshū. Today, it can be divided into two distinct categories: the original plain dark clay early Satsuma (古薩摩 Ko-Satsuma) made in Satsuma from around 1600, and the elaborately decorated export Satsuma (京薩摩 Kyō-Satsuma) ivory-bodied pieces which began to be produced in the nineteenth century in various Japanese cities. By adapting their gilded polychromatic enamel overglaze designs to appeal to the tastes of western consumers, manufacturers of the latter made Satsuma ware one of the most recognized and profitable export products of the Meiji period.
