Satsuma – Masterpieces from the World’s Important Collections

This recent and very fine book is the book of choice for the advanced Satsuma collector. Both the strength and the weakness of this book is that it concentrates on top end pieces from 1870 to 1915, from the very good and great Kyoto makers and artists. It has a good marks section too, but only for these artists.

It featured some of the finest examples from Kinkozan and Yabu Meizan. Each piece is beautifully illustrated and described, some fold out sections showing full panoramic views of the decoration.
