SOLD 

The centre of the dish is decorated in underglaze blue with a Shochikubai mon, a motif composed of the Three Friends of Winter framed by Chevron border with demi-florets. This particular form of mon appears to have had a relatively short-lived period of popularity and dates the bowl to the second quarter of the eighteenth century. The cavetto is decorated with an iron red interwoven Y diaper ground inset with three quadrilobed medallions painted in underglaze cobalt blue outlined in gilt each co ...click for details

SOLD 

A barbed form dish decorated in kakiwake style with a White Elephant and Chinese Boy. The design here is not the Confucian parable of Shun and the Elephants, but one that explores a Buddhist theme. The White Elephant in Buddhism is symbolic of mental strength achieved through the practice of the Dharma. The boy figure holding a staff stares at rocks and Banana plaintain, symbols of longevity and the impermanence of life. He may be a representation of Henkitsu, the Bohisattiva Fugen. Boy avatars, ...click for details

EastWest Gallery



£150 - $255 

An interesting and rare dish, something of a homage both to Nabeshima ware and root vegetables. The central motif is a Daikon painted in underglaze blue, following a similar motif found on Nabeshima porcelain, see Les Cadeaux au Shogun page 155, plate no 28, for a large Nabeshima dish decorated with a similar representation of a daikon set against a repeating wave ground,. The moulded swirling ribbed rim decorated with further representations of radishes or possibly turnips, and sprays of carrot ...click for details

£130 - $220 

A rather curious dish of moulded Kraak form decorated with a partially obscured Chinese four toed Dragon painted in underglaze cobalt blue with gilt outlined enamelled auspicious clouds framed by a band of stylised Chrysanthemum demi-florets. The reverse decorated with further stylised clouds and a six character mark for the Emperor Yongzheng. An identical dish appears in the Shibata collection dated circa 1750-80, although I think the dish may well be more or less contemporary with the reign ...click for details

A finely painted sometsuke bowls decorated with alternating reserves of three leaping koi divided by a criss-cross ground or “nets” and a central motif of a Chinese landscape featuring a figure collecting fire wood with his head looking skyward.
