A Small 17th Century Japanese Blue and White Porcelain Dish
A Small Finely Painted Japanese Dish, Perhaps Kakiemon Kilns, Genroku Period 1688 – 1704. This small Japanese serving dish looks very much like Kakiemon but it is possible that it is from the Arita kilns but in the Kakiemon style. The scene of a waterfall with flowering prunus is carefully thought out and executed. The interior ‘cash’ design is blue with a blue ground, the design is repeated to the exterior but without a blue ground. The base has a single spur mark from the kiln support.
- Small repairs ; a few colour filled glaze chips to the iron oxide rim, a Kintsugi 金継ぎ (golden joinery) repair to the footrim and two other tiny Kintsugi repairs to the back of the rim. See additional photographs.
