Feather strokes of oil glaze stand like plumage on this exquisite Art-Deco era vase by Kanae Shokoku I enclosed in the original signed wooden box dating from the early 20th century. It is 45 cm (17-1/2 inches) tall 25 cm (10 inches) diameter and in excellent condition. The first Shokoku (1899-1965) was born on Awaji Island in the pristine inland sea and was apprenticed to Kiyomizu Rokubei V at the age of ten. His work was selected for exhibition with the Teiten National Exhibition consistently through the pre-war years, and he was one of the first potters to be named a bearer of important cultural properties (Gijutsu Hozon Sakka) in 1941. His son, Tetsuo (1927-1997), took the reins upon is death and the family is currently headed by Kanae Shokoku III (Michiaki, b. 1948).
