Set of Five Ai Kutani Suisen Dishes c.1670

A good set of five Ai-Kutani dishes made for the domestic market in the period 1670-80. The central reserve decorated with Suisen, the Japanese Narcisus, emblematic of the 12th Lunar month and the season of Winter framed by an elaborate kara kusa style arabesque. The reverse decorated with trailing foliage, perhaps intended to represent a Gourd vine. Each dish, an o-sara, measures 21.4cm in diameter and has a slightly flattened plain rim. The dishes display very well, however each dish has some damages, presumably it would appear from sprung wire hangers, mainly in the form of minor chips to the rim of the dishes and the fragile foot-ring. See individual listings for additional images and condition report for each dish. The dishes are only available as a group and are not for sale individually. Shipping at Cost.
