Japanese potters from the late 19th century were interested in the beautiful glazes on early Chinese ceramics and sought to emulate them. Many potters like Zoroku kept collections of Longquan celadon which inspired them to create new masterpieces. Although we do not know which master potter created this vase it is certainly of a very high standard. This has been done in the style of, and by a contemporary of, the great potter Seifu Yohei IV.
