0.00

A very fine Japanese Edo period (1603-1867) large export Imari porcelain charger, circa 2nd half 18th Century, decorated over-the-glaze Kinrande-style in gold on iron red with underglaze cobalt blue, the border laid out in three-way radial symmetry, consisting of three kidney-shaped panels of figural scenics, each with a different illustration of bijin courtesans pulling a garden handcart bearing a container grown cherry tree in blossom, embellished with butterflies, each panel alternating with a disk of seigaiha wave (or fishscale) brocade, over red & gold florals and a gilded ground, centering a scenic roundel dominated by an eagle or hawk perched on one foot eyeing its prey, a dove flying among stylized clouds in a fantasy landscape of flowering boughs of mudan (tree peony) and pomegranate, the reverse painted with sprays of botan (peony) plum and chrysanthemum in colors.

This is a rare item of exceptional quality, a true collector’s piece.
