Well, fist of all, I´m portuguesse and my english is no so good, sorry first of all. The vase I´ll show you is 30 cm tall more or less, quite irregular in the mouth, lips and molde, quite strong semi porcelain, completly compatible with satsuma porcelain, without human figures, only an enamel in red gold and difrent colours, no marks, neither in the botton nor in the rest of the vase, the only figures most than the decorative enamel are chrisantemun flowers, you´ll can see it, an medallions with dragons and phoenix quite esquematics. It for part of a pair similars but clearly handmaked with a lot of of making irregularities, diferent lips, one mounth bigger than the other, a little taller one and some details like this. Mi fist idea was it coud be a meiji one in brocade style, but I can not find one similar. Maibe an edo-meiji one?, imperial satsuma....for me a bit impossible, I need help obbiusly, all my knowledge are ended, thanks for all and regard from Galiza

    Hi Roberto, your vase is actually moriage, a type of decoration produced using thick porcelain paste and applied to a vase form as you would decorate a cake. It is likely late Meiji as it generally disappeared after about 1920. Satsuma has two meanings: Porcelain made in Japan by a kiln with marks associated with the Shimazu clan, almost all of which has a distinctive style. Secondly, it is porcelain made in the style of Satsuma, but without the marks, and would be referred to as 'Satsuma style' rather than Satsuma. I hope this helps, best wishes, Jim

    Many thanks jwendell222, I´m sure you are used to identify a porcelain better than me. in this case I thougt about the moriage, I habe a good lot of moriage pottery, paris style, satsuma style,, well and others, my home was a more or less rich place in the imperial dates, victorian, and this heavy decoratives objects are quite comun, with a gigant enamel, flowers aplyed and tipical golden dots, for me there are quite beautifull pices of moriage pottery but I´m sure tha it is not one of them, the crackel is not imitated, and the decoration is integrated in all the piece not aplyed by parts, well I can not splain mysef better, idiomatic problems, but if I thougth It could be a moriage piece sute I did not ask for help, but you could be in reaseon. Nevertheless I´m not sute all the Kyoto satsuma ware must be signed, I could be mistaked again. Well Its all, Thanks for your help, but like a good illness I ned almost two opinions. ;-) regards
