Very good condition, see description
The name of this porcelain goes back to the small port of Imari, near Arita, from where the goods were brought to Nagasaki, the branch of the Dutch East India Company. Arita and Imari are located in the area of today's Saga Prefecture in the north of the island of Kyushu.
Three colours dominate in the painting of the traditional Imari porcelain, called "old Imari" (ko-Imari): Cobalt blue, rust red with an element of saffron, as well as the white ground. The whole is emphasized by the use of gold. The painting mainly shows floral patterns, as well as motifs from the animal world and minerals. The brocade effect found many enthusiasts in European courts. Japanese porcelain painters showed much imagination and freedom in the design of the motifs. They understood how to divide the surface in an original manner and also dared to use asymmetrical compositions.
Very good condition, but worn gold rim, stamped on the back, diameter: 18 cm
