notes

Yabu Meizan (1853-1934), the most successful of all manufacturers of Satsuma ware, opened his workshop in Osaka in 1880 and first garnered critical acclaim in 1885 when he won a bronze medal at the Fourteenth Kyoto Exhibition. From 1888 he concentrated on the export market, particularly the United States, producing wares decorated with Chinese or Buddhist subjects, but during the 1890s he began to favor native Japanese themes. Throughout the first decade of the twentieth century, Yabu focused his energy on the great international expositions, especially Paris (1900), St Louis (1904), and London (1910), visiting each venue and playing a major organizational role. It is highly likely that the present ambitious lot, an outstanding example of the mature Yabu style, was intended for one of these influential global events.
