An 18th Century Japanese Porcelain Dish
An Unusual 18th Century Japanese Porcelain Dish, Arita Kilns c.1750-1790. This thickly potted dish has an everted rim and a large area for the central design. This unusual scene is of a Japanese traditional room called a zashiki . There is a banana plant and a cycad growing beyond the room, a stylised sky lingers over the room. The border consists of stylised snow flakes and chevron, the rim is dressed with the gold lustre. The base has a mark which is perhaps more of a design than anything meaningful.
- In excellent condition, the gold lustre on the rim is very worn.
- Diameter 19.8 cm (7 3/4 inches).
