A Japanese Imari - Kakiemon Style 17th Century  Dish
This is a Japanese Imari dish decorated in underglaze blue [Sometsuke] with polychrome muted multi colored enamels in classic Kakiemon style. On the reverse are decorations of two underglaze blue shrimp or lobsters. The dish has an unglazed foot rim It does not have any signature of markings.

The dish measures 6 inches in diameter and is 1 1/4 inches deep. We believe that is dates from the early Edo Period - probably the Genroku - circa 1690. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or other damage or repairs. There is one tiny underglaze flaw from manufacture at about 10 o'clock on the rim. Overall, there is light crackle to the glaze from age, which is clean.

Footnote - Genroku (元禄?) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō,?, lit. "year name") after Jōkyō and before Hōei. This period spanned the years from September 1688 through March 1704, The years of Genroku are generally considered to be the Golden Age of the Edo Period. The previous hundred years of peace and seclusion in Japan had created relative economic stability. The arts and architecture flourished during this period.
