Ships in a rustic wooden box with Japanese lettering.
This antique Japanese Imari plate makes a striking display or serving piece. The birds make a strong statement, as do the lavish flowers.
Imari ware is a type of Arita ware traditionally made in the town of Arita, in the former Hizen Province, northwestern Kyushu. They were exported to Europe extensively from the port of Imari, Saga, between the second half of the 17th century and the first half of the 18th century. The name therefore derives from the port of export. Imari ware has been continuously produced up through the present day.
