DESCRIPTION: A square porcelain dish by Arita, hand painted in the blue and white “Three Friends of Winter” motif. The “Three Friends of Winter” was a popular Japanese theme where pine, prunus and bamboo are grouped, said to represent perseverance, longevity and vitality, despite adversity. The raised and flared edges have repeating geometric patterns and bamboo plants are found in each corner. The plate rests on a round raised foot with blue designs on the undersides. Produced in the early 1900’s, this plate is in very good condition with no chips or repairs. DIMENSIONS: 10 ½” square (26.7 cm) x 1 ¾” high (4.5 cm).
