A fine Imari bowl and cover decorated with a pattern composed of Autumn flowers, akikusa de, and Banded hedges, shibagaki. A wheel cut Johanneum inventory number incised to the interior of the foot-ring of the bowl indicating that it belonged to the collection of Augustus the Strong, and was acquired before 1722. Both cover and bowl marked with an enamelled choji motif. The bowl and cover are in superb condition, no cracks, chips or restoration. The porcelain and the enamelling are of excellent quality suggesting that it may well have come from one of the Nangawara kilns. The bowl measures 10.5 cm in diameter and stands 6.2cm high and the cover measures 10cm in diameter and stands 3cm high. The cover and bowl have a combined height of 8.5cm.
