    This fine example of Satsuma ware was produced in Yokohama by a company begun by Hodota Takichi, formerly a tea merchant. The piece is signed 'Masanobu', possibly the decorator. With the Meiji Satsuma ware, the base was often made in Kagoshima, the traditional Satsuma ware region, and sent to various areas to be decorated. Some pieces found their way to the domestic market, but most were made for export.
