Intricate, subtle, delicate, elegant; all words which could be applied to this set of ten dishes decorated with flowers in raised reliefby Takahashi Seizan enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Gyokude Kusabana Kameko-gata Sara (Tortoise Shell Shaped Dishes decorated with Flowers and Grass in Pearl-slip) Pale white slip has been applied in thick, sculpted patterns to a cream surface, sweeping sides peaked with gold rims. Each plate is 22 cm (9 inches) wide, 5 cm (2 inches) tall. There are a few color infusions into the glaze, but no chips cracks or repairs. These date to the Taisho period, a time of great innovation. They are reminiscent of the works of other Kyoto artists at the time, in particular Seifu Yohei and his Taihakuji, and Kiyomizu Rokube and his Taireiji.

Takahashi Seizan (b. 1871) was a potter active from the Meiji to early Showa era, associated with Kiyomizu Rokubei and Miyanaga Tozan and is known to have corroborated with the famed painter Hashimoto Kansetsu on ceramic works. He exhibited frequently with the Nomuten (the largest crafts exhibition before the Teiten opened a crafts division in 1927).
