Export Satsuma ware is sometimes referred to as “Cabinet Satsuma”, and, as such, is not intended to be used for practical purposes.

Highly decorative, it should be treated very much as a piece of art to be admired.

Because Satsuma decoration is painted on glaze, there is no protective layer like there would be on porcelain.

Satsuma ware is a type of earthenware pottery originating from the Satsuma province in southern Kyushu, Japan’s third largest island.

The first kilns were established in the 16th century by Korean potters, kidnapped by the Japanese for their extraordinary skills. Prior to this, there was no real ceramic industry to speak of in the Satsuma region.

There are two distinct types of Satsuma ware. The original Ko-Satsuma is characterised by a heavy dark glaze, often plain, but occasionally with an inscribed or relief pattern. This style is rarely seen outside museums and it proliferated up until about 1800.

From around 1800, a new style – Kyo-satsuma – became popular. Famed for its delicate, ivory coloured ground with finely crackled transparent glaze, it was markedly different to Ko-Satsuma. These early designs focused on over-glaze decoration of simple, light, floral patterns with painted gilding. Colours often used were iron red, purple, blue, turquoise, black and yellow.
