This is a matching pair of Japanese nabeshima footed dish with blue painted background with white flowers. This is quite unusual where as normally it's painted with the subject on a white background. The painting technique is quite striking where as the background is a lighter blue to enhanced the white flowers & darker blue foliage. The back of the dish is painted with 4 blue butterflies & with the traditional blue paint combed foot. One dish has two spots baked imperfection. Otherwise they both are in excellent condition.
