Bowl is 7 inches diameter. Ships in a rustic wooden box with Japanese lettering.
This Imari vintage dish features a classic blue and white palette. The painter of this piece depicted an idyllic country landscape of dreamy Japan. This is a thoughtful contemplation of the bucolic life on a graceful footed bowl.
Imari ware is a type of Arita ware traditionally made in the town of Arita, in the former Hizen Province, northwestern Kyūshū. 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.
