Pair Large Japanese Meiji Arita Porcelain Dishes (Ex. Liberty)
This attractive pair of large porcelain dishes with foliate rims was made during the late Meiji period (1868 - 1912). They are each decorated with a design featuring geese swooping down on grasses (possibly millet) that are in full seed. The decoration comprises various different coloured enamels and gilding. The underside is decorated with kirimon (an heraldic device based on the leaves of the paulownia tree) in underglaze blue with gilding.
The diameter of each dish is 28 cm (11 inches). Each dish is in fine condition with minor surface wear, no repair or restoration and a good ring when tapped.
Interestingly each dish bears the label of the famous department store Liberty who were the Oriental specialists of Regent Street, London during the late 19th century.
