About Satsume via Wikipedia
Satsuma ware (薩摩焼 satsuma yaki) is a style of Japanese earthenwar originally from the Satsuma region of what is today southern Kyūshū. Today, it can be divided into two distinct categories: the original plain dark clay early Satsuma (ko satsuma 古薩摩) made in Satsuma from around 1600, and the elaborately decorated export Satsuma (京薩摩kyō satsuma) ivory-bodied pieces which began to be produced in the nineteenth century in various Japanese cities. By adapting their gilded polychromatic enamel overglaze designs to appeal to the tastes of western consumers, manufacturers of the latter made Satsuma ware one of the most recognized and profitable export products of the Meijing period.
