A differently shaped Kakiemon bowl done in a quatrefoil shape. The inside of the bowl has three sprays of flowers in the traditional palette of light orange, yellow, green and blue in over the glaze enamel. The outer side of the bowl has four low relief designs of a single flower in a spray of thin leaves.
There is no signature or box with the bowl, It is in generally fine condition - there are two hairlines on the outside of the bowl that do not go through to the inside. The bowl measures 4 1/4" diameter by 2 1/4" high - the base is 1 3/4" diameter. We date the piece to the early Showa period - however, it could easily date to as early as the late Meiji period, circa 1880-1900.
