Extra Notes: Satsuma ware is a type of Japanese earthenware pottery. It originated in the late 16th century, during the Azuchi-Momoyama period. The best know types of Satsuma ware has a soft, ivory colored, crackled glaze with elaborate polychrome and gold decorations. Satsuma ware was made in vast numbers exclusively for the export market or for sale to the legions of tourists who visited Japan in the early part of last century and wanted a souvenir of the "exotic" East to take home with them. Later after display at an international exhibition in Paris in 1867, it proved popular as an export to Europe. Amongst the decorative elements around the shoulder will be found a cross within a circle. This is the "Mon" or clan symbol of the Shimazu family who controlled the Satsuma region from the mid 17th Century until the Meiji revolution and is frequently found on some types of Satsuma pottery less
