A vivacious crystalline glazed vase by Seifu Yohei IV enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Gishi-yu Kessho-mon Kabin Vase with Purple Crystal Pattern Glaze). With the bold color and striking natural patterns it has quite a lot of presence. The vessel is 21.5 cm (8-1/2 inches) diameter, 23 cm (9 inches) tall and in excellent condition.
Seifū Yohei IV (Seizan: 1872-1946) was born the second son of Seifū Yohei III (1851-1914). He studied literati-style painting under Tanomura Shōsai (1845-1909), a son of Tanomura Chokunyū, in Osaka for three years. In 1914, he succeeded to the head of the family and produced works mostly in his father’s style. He won a number of prizes including the Golden Prize at the Panama Pacific International Exposition, San Francisco in 1916 and the exhibitions of the Japan Art Association in 1916 and 1918. He produced several works for members of the Imperial family.
