About the work

[Inscription] SEIFŪ Yohei III

[Year of Manufacture] 1889-1912


Created by SEIFŪ Yohei III, this vase features a coral-colored glaze—just one of many glazes that Yohei was adept at making—which covers the entire piece's surface. This creation seems to symbolize the literary pastime that was becoming widely popular in the Meiji Era 1868 – 1912. It is also an elegant piece that would stand out prominently in the literary study of a man of letters.
