An Imari double -fish plate of vitreous porcelain rendered in cobalt blue enamel with over-the-glaze iron red and gilt detailing. Three large cartouches with images of peony, sakura and wisteria emphasize its beauty, the modeled accents on the fins, eyes and tail providing a three-dimensional quality. (The double- fish motif is associated with marital bliss.) This Imari plate is in marvelous condition with minor wear commensurate with age and use. Length: 12.25" Meiji Period, Japan
