Antique Japanese Kutani Kaburaki Sei Porcelain Cup and Saucer Hand Painted Meiji



Antique Japanese Kutani Kaburaki Sei Porcelain Cup and Saucer Hand Painted Meiji

It is extremely rare to find a cup and saucer hand-painted on the inside of the cup with a beautiful landscape design.
I was unable to find any other in the same style.
It has a signature on the base for Kubaraki Sei.

History of Kaburaki.

Edo Period (1822-1860's)
The Kaburaki family started business in Kanazawa in 1822, the era of Ienari, the 11th Tokugawa shogun, as the very first commercial merchant of Kutani porcelain.
Kutani porcelain was reactivated under the patronage of the Kaga clan, and the old Wakasugi and Ono kilns were just founded. Two years later, Mr. Den-emon Toyota set up the famous Yoshidaya kiln.
During the revival period, the Kaburaki family played a very important role in selling stocks and producing original porcelains painted by artisans in their own factory.

Meiji to Taisho Period (1870's-1920's)

The Fourth Owner, Jihei Kaburaki, stepped up efforts to expand exports around the world starting during the last phase of the Edo Period, and in the early Meiji Era, foreign business took off.
In conjunction with domestic demand expansion, our production capacity was in place in terms of both quality and quantity.
In that period, Kutani was said to be completely revived as local representative industry and be set in prosperity by increasing export.
The Kaburaki family had active presences in many exhibit occasions, both domestically and internationally.
Thanks to acquired high reputations and fame with series of awards, Kutani by the Kaburaki were appreciated as topnotch products.
It is mentioned in the history book “330years of Kutani” that, “Our Kaburaki emblem stamped on back of each and every product shows our pride and responsibility in our work.
We believe in keeping our mind modest and wanting to have our customers the best products, and such an attitude might have led us in a position as a leading merchant.”
Currently, a part of collections are being gathered, from home and abroad, can be seen at the gallery located at our main store.

Showa Period to Present (1930's)

In the early Showa period, with cease of export, the Kaburaki shifted the eyes on domestic demands.
Since then, the Kaburaki has been distributing Kutani porcelains to all over Japan, even during the hardest wartime.

Now, the Kaburaki is celebrating nearly 190 years of its history. Every staff member has the founder’s spirit to deliver special and excellent Kutani porcelains to customers nationwide and worldwide.

These are in near-perfect condition, free of chips, cracks or restoration.

It measures 6cm H x 7.2cm W x 6cm D for cup.
2cm H x 11.5cm in diameter for saucer.
