- Stoneware with polychrome enamel and bisque
Pair of stoneware with polychrome enamel and bisque vases in the Satsuma style. These elaborately surfaced but simply shaped vases have a landscape design of a rockery raised above the cream-colored ground. A hawk chasing three birds swooshes across the pounding sea on each. Geometric neck and foot border bands contain the dramatic scene.
