Large Satsuma Handpainted Brooch.
Japanese Satsuma pottery domed brooch with painted iris or flag flowers and two butterflies. Gold highlights. Brass back. This brooch has been converted from a buckle, and is therefore a larger size than many of this type of brooch. It measures 5.1 cm by 5.1 cm. It has the typical crackle pattern of Satsuma earthenware to the glaze. Japanese mark also on rear. This is a lovely example of the type - and if you wanted, it could easily be returned to a buckle by removing the brooch fitting from the rear. It is a heavy item, and would need to be worn on a heavy fabric - such as a jacket.
