For sale is this quite rare Japanese Imari model of a cat dating to the 19th century. The cat in a seated position is approx 13.5 cm tall and approx 11cm long. It is decorated in underglaze blue, overglaze iron red and green enamel, the eyes picked out in yellow and black. The cat has an unusual facial expression, and as a model with this colour design quite rare. For an almost identical example although slightly larger, see Millers guide to Chinese & Japanese Antiques page 142. Slight restoration to one front paw and one ear only.
