Paulownia Crests and stylized Chrysanthemum, symbols of the Japanese Imperial Family, decorate this large Meiji period baluster vase signed on the base Taniguchi sei enclosed in the original age-darkened kiri-wood box and retaining the original Taniguchi Studio label. It is 46 cm (18 inches) tall plus the base and in overall fine condition, with some wear to the gold rim and one small glaze crack in the body (see close-up photo).
Taniguchi Kinyodo was a purveyor of fine porcelain founded in 1875 by Taniguchi Kichijiro (Kichizo) and employed or provided the outlet for a number of important artists of the era, including Matsumoto Sahei. They created works for the Meiji emperor, and produced items for the 1911 Italian Worlds Art Exposition. Although the studio survived the second world war, it closed doors in 1957.
