EastWest Gallery



£55 - $90 

A large Soba Choko, so-called noodle cup, but originally intended for use as a drinking vessel, decorated with a pattern of stylised Cherry trees with drapery and tassels. The pattern refers to the tradition of draping Cherry trees with textile screens as part of the celebrations surrounding the arrival of Cherry blossom heralding the arrival of Spring. The curious conflation of Cherry blossom with the trailing foliage of the Wisteria, is perhaps a literary reference to the account in the Tal ...click for details

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.

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

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
