This beautiful jar is made in the Imari style of ceramics. The Imari tradition, about 400 years old, is probably the best-know form of Japanese pottery as it was mainly made to be exported to Europe from the beginning of the 17th century to the mid 18th century, and then again at the end of the 19th century, during the Meiji period (1868-1912).
This particular piece, with intricate underglaze cobalt blue decorations of plants and birds, probably dates from the end of the 19th century.
Kindly inquire if you have some questions.
The jar is in perfect condition.
