Large Studio Porcelain Plate Mt. Fuji by Senpoen

This elegant Japanese studio porcelain dish is hand painted with a relief design of Mt. Fuji in soft and subtle hues. Ca.1900-1910. On the reverse there is a four-character signature in underglaze blue that reads “Senpoen sei” (made by Senpoen), a porcelain manufacturer in Gifu City.

Mt. Fuji is painted in a soft grayish off-white tone, and its snow-capped peak is rendered in low relief with stark white slip glaze. The peak of the sacred mountain rises up against the palest of blue skies, which fades to an even lighter shade as it approaches the edge of the plate. The exterior rim is completely covered in a soft celadon (“seiji”) glaze, which surrounds the brilliant white glazed base and four-character Senpoen mark. The low foot rim is unglazed, showing a very pure, fine-grained and high-quality white porcelain clay.

CONDITION is very good, with only an imperceptible hairline on the reverse and normal surface wear consistent with age. DIMENSIONS: 9 ½” (24.1 cm) diameter, 1 ½” (3.8 cm) high.
