Masterpiece Imari Porcelain Charger

A golden phoenix has flown into a flowering tree and looks into a garden below where a chrysanthemum bush blossoms forth from a mystical rock. The poetry of this scene discloses a hidden reference to the ancient imperial lineage: the fortuitous phoenix, prime creature of the air hovers protectively over the sixteen-petaled chrysanthemum, the kiku, symbol of the Imperial house. In exquisite detail and restrained coloring, all elements of design combine to bring forth a radiant masterpiece, with a diameter of just over 18-1/2 inches (47 mm.) and a rim depth of approximately 2-3/4 inches. The condition is excellent but please note that in some of the pictures the camera has picked up reflections.
