An elegant form by Katori Masahiko enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled simply Kabin (Flower Vase). It is 9 inches (23 cm) tall and in excellent condition.
Katori Masahiko (1899-1988) was born into the family of prominent Bronze Artist Katori Hozuma in Chiba. He was internationally awarded at the Paris Exposition in 1925, the year he graduated The Tokyo University of Fine Arts (a student of Tsuda Shinobu). Heavily involved with the Teiten/Nitten National Art Exhibition, following the destruction of the Second World War, he would spend years working to save Japanese Buddhist Treasures, and making Bells for Temples and Monuments. He was designated an Important Intangible Cultural Property of Japan (Living National Treasure) in 1977.
