Two Porcelain Tea pots for sencha steeped tea decorated with a cluster of irises and a poem by important early female artist Kawabe Seiran enclosed in the original signed wooden box dated Autum of 1922. Each is roughly 9.5 cm (just less than 4 inches) diameter and both are in excellent condition.
Kawabe Seiran (1868-1931) was a rare female Osaka painter trained in the literati style painting under female artist Hashimoto Seiko in Osaka. She also became adept at Chinese style poetry under Mega Yusho, and calligraphy under Teranishi Ekido and Murata Kaiseki. Through her Juku she served as mentor to a great number of later Osaka female Painters. A retrospective of her life work was held recently at the Mie Prefectural Museum of Art.
