PLEASE HELP



THIS JAPANESE JAR IS FANTASTICALLY HAND PAINTED ON GOLDFIELD PORCELAIN AND IS IN MUSEUM QUALITY CONDITION. IT IS AN EXCEPTIONAL PIECE. NO CHIPS, NO CRACKS, NO RESTORATIONS, NO WEAR TO GILDING, NO WEAR TO PAINTING. THE MEASUREMENT IS APROX. 14.75" HIGH TO TOP OF LID AND 7.35" IN DIAMETER AT ITS WIDEST. IT IS MARKED ON THE BASE WITH A SATSUMA MON, SHIMATSU MARK AND IN JAPANESE CHARACTERS THE NAME OF THE ARTIST. HOWEVER I DO NOT KNOW WHO THE ARTIST WAS, WHERE IT WAS MADE (PREFECTURE), WHCIH KILN IT WAS MADE AND WHAT IT WAS USED FOR. IT APPEARS IT IS A MILLE FLEUR VASE BUT THEN IT COULD ALSO BE A TEMPLE JAR. THERE APPEARS TO BE A STORY ON THE GOLD PANELS WITH SOME JAPANESE WRITING OF WHICH I'D LOVE TO KNOW WHAT THE WRITING MEANS. THERE ARE DIFFERENT ILLUSTRATIONS ALONG THE BODY OF THE JAR WITH CALLIGRAPHY FRAGMENTS FROM THE "100 POETS ANTHOLOGY" BY HON'AMI KOETSU. WRITTEN IN A FLOWING, CONNECTED SOSHO STYLE ACCOMPANIED BY DIFFERENT JAPANESE CHARACTERS SEATED IN DIFFERENT POSITIONS. I AM NOT SURE FROM WHAT PERIOD IT ORIGINATES FROM EDO?, MEIJI?, TAISHO? I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO KNOW AN APPROXIMATE VALUE FOR THE ITEM FOR INSURANCE PURPOSES. ATTACHED ARE 10 IMAGES FOR YOUR EVALUATION. THE ITEM IS NOT FOR SALE. THANK YOU. IN THE MEANTIME I AM WAITING FOR YOUR RESPONSE. THANK YOU AND KIND REGARDS

Hi Ralph,

We did not receive the photos you said were attached. So I don't know if you have Genuine Satsuma Porcelain or imitation Royal Satsuma. The estimated value for Genuine Satsuma is from $500 to $3000. The estimated value for imitation Royal Satsuma is from $20 to $300

Below is a link that will allow you to determine what kind of Satsuma you have
