A set of Kyoyaki Tokkuri with iron decoration on heavily crackled pale glaze, one bearing a young pine bough brushed by Maruyama Oshin, the other a verse dedicated to the pine by an unidentified poet. Although most of the script is illegible to me, it begins Kadonomatsu (Pine by the gate) and appears to be signed Jukei (Chukei). They are 17 cm (6-3/4 inches) tall and in excellent condition.
Maruyama Oshin (1790-1838) was a son of Maruyama Oju, the second son of Maruyama Okyo, founder of the Maruyama school of painting. He was adopted into the main branch of the family, eventually become the third head of the Maruyama line. He frequently incorporated Japanese poems in his work. Held in the collections of the British Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art New York, Brooklyn Museum Boston, Los Angeles, National Gallery of Victoria and the Kyoto National Museum (Hakubutsukan) among many others.
