A round Satsuma plate depicting a bustling marketplace framed by floating textiles in myriads of colors and patterns. The image focuses on an elegantly dressed bijin with two young attendants being welcomed by a merchant, the retainer with open parasol. In the background, villagers in traditional kimono go about their daily business against an inviting world of blossoming sakura and street lamps. This lovely Satsuma plate, so definitive of Japanese daily life, is in excellent condition. Gilt signature of “Kozan” found on reverse side. Diameter: 7.75” Meiji Period, Japan
