|This is fine Imari shallow bowl with a lovely decorated wide band on the rim executed in green and red nishiki geometric style. Nishiki is the Japanese word for "brocade”. The rim has a wavy slightly scalloped edge. Between the nishiki border and the reserve scene en cavetto, there are Buddhist symbols. In between those symbols are three sprays of the Three Friends of Winter – pine, bamboo and plum blossoms. The bottom of the plate has an underglaze design of a small village on a lake. The plate measures 6’ diameter by 2” deep and is in excellent condition. We date it to the early Meiji period, 1870-1880s.|
