    Gold‐Painted Porcelain Vase1945 34.6 cm tall
    Also called gold brocaded porcelain, this style is named after what looks like gold brocade laid upon the object, an effect achieved through designs in gold leaf and powder on the object being fired. This is one of Rosanjin's most dazzling and gorgeous works, and no similar vase exists.

Kitaoji Rosanjin

1883‐1959
Kitaoji Rosanjin was born in Kyoto Prefecture. His skill in Japanese calligraphy and seal curving was apparent at an early age, and his interests later spread to cooking and antiques. In 1919, he opened his own antique shop, “Taiga‐do Art Shop.” He also used its second floor as a Japanese membership restaurant “Bishoku Club,” which was the predecessor of Hoshigaoka Saryo, a restaurant he established at another site in 1925. He aimed for the comprehensive aesthetics surrounding cooking, and produced dishes for meals, and flower vases and paintings that are suited for the dining room. Thus, he established his own aesthetic world of art.
