Celebrated in Japan as an imperial ware, Hirado porcelain continues to captivate collectors for the purity and lustrous quality of the clay. This pair of round plates exhibits a beloved theme in Japanese art—the heavenly dragon amongst clouds and iconic Mt. Fuji in the background. The distinctive under-the-glaze blue enamel is expertly rendered in sweeping strokes, resulting in a dynamic portrayal of the theme. The pair of Hirado plates is in very good condition with slight kiln marks. Diameter: 7” Late 19th Century, Japan
