Traditionally an isolationist kingdom, Japan had entered the modern world by the late 19th century and was an eager participant in Chicago's Columbian Exposition of 1892-93. This exquisite Satsuma one-handled pitcher was made in Japan for sale in America as a souvenir of the exposition. One side shows Machinery Hall while the other has the expo's Japanese building. As is typical of Satsuma, this pitcher has gilt highlights and a creme outer glaze. Signed in Japanese on the base in a blue underglaze. A hairline to the underside and a small amount of wear to the gilt on the handle, else very fine condition. 7.25" high.
