Elegant imagery in rusty orange decorates the yellow body of this small vase by important artist and Living National Treasure Tokuda Yasokichi I enclosed in the original signed wooden box. It is 4-1/2 inches (11 cm) tall and in excellent condition. A very difficult artist to find, this is a rare opportunity.
Tokuda Yasokichi I (1873 –1956)was born into a family of textile dyers in Ishikawa prefecture, but entered the ceramics world under the tutelage of his Brother Matsumoto Sahei, specializing in the Yoshidaya decorative technique of Kutani ware in 1890. In 1922 he received Imperial patronage. He was named one of the first living National Treasures in 1953 (and his grandson, Yasokichi III would also be named such).
