An Arita Dome Covered Bowl - Meiji - Cracked Ice
A handsome Arita domed bowl with a design based on an old Chinese motif called "cracked ice". The theme is meant to symbolize Spring with the design on plum blossoms (prunus) falling on an ice covered pond or lake that is beginning to thaw and crack. Another section of the lid is a scene of a wandering stream with fallen leaves. The base of the lid and the upper band of the base have a design of stylized waves. The piece measures 7" diameter and is 5" high at the peak of the dome. It is in excellent condition with no chips or restorations. There is a signature on the base that has been translated as "AO" under a logo. We date it to the mid Meiji period, circa 1880-1895.
