Fine Antique Satsuma Porcelain Cup In Ottoman Zarf, Solid Silver Saucer C1880 For Sale

Fine Antique Satsuma Porcelain Cup In Ottoman Zarf, Solid Silver Saucer C1880

Beautiful, Fine and rareAntique Turkish Ottoman Zarf. c1880.

All complete and original and an incredible survivor.

The zarf (coffee cup holder) itself is made presumably of a good quality yellow (presumably base) metal and features a fine cast handle.

The porcelain cup is clearly the original and is a perfect fit. It has the Japanese Satsuma mark of Dai Nippon Taizan Sei. It dates to the middle of the Meiji era, c1880. Takahashi Yohei Go Taizan was the head of the 9th and last generation of the Takahashi family of Awata Satsuma potters and he produced almost entirely for export, especially to America where his products are still sought after.

The saucer is made of solid silver and again is a perfect match, the zarf sitting properly in it's centre. It is hallmarked with the Tughra of Abdulhamid II and can also be dated to around 1880. It is made from 90% pure solid silver. The saucer has a diameter of 122mm or just over 4 and 1/2 inches.

The overall gross weight is 69g.

Sultan Abdulhamid IIwas the 34th Sultan of the Turkish Ottoman Empire, ruling from 1876 until 1909. The Japanese Emporer Meiji was at this time the 122nd Emporer of Japan. Whilst the Ottoman Empire at the time was in terminal decline, Japan was rising from a feudal state to a world power.

The serving of coffee in Turkey, like the serving of tea in Japan was a complex ritualized process. For added interest I have added a photo of the two rulers as they would have appeared when this piece was made, perhaps waiting for their cuppers to be delivered.

This then is an amazing and original survivor which should really be in a museum.
