19th Century Japanese Satsuma Vase ~ Jardiniere with Bronze Mounts is an amazing work of art with scenes hand-painted around the entire circle of the base creating a slightly different presentation as one views the piece from all angles.  Such vases were produced in Japan by talented artisans, then shipped to one of their primary markets in France for the addition of intricately cast bronze mounts.  In this case, the bronze includes four elaborate feet with lions' heads set upon a pierced gallery that serves as the base.  Above, the rim is festooned with another pierced rail with two ferocious dragons on each side serving as handles.  Original Satsuma pottery was made in or around Kagoshima in Kyushu, Japan in the later part of the 19th century, through to the early 1920s in Satsuma in southern Japan.  Typical of Satsuma pieces, this piece exhibits intricate and minute Japanese figures, landscapes and of course dragons.  The designs also feature a form of decoration called Moriage which is a term used to describe the use of raised enamel seen on many pieces of Asian and Japanese pottery.
