8.5" Japanese Meiji Satsuma Plate Buddhist Rakan Dragon
Japanese Satsuma foliate form deep dish densely decorated in polychrome enamels and gilt with Rakans in a landscape setting. Two dragons executed in relief and with moriage highlights encircle the inner edge, with heads and tails ending at two gilt Satsuma family crests. The base is marked in gold with Satsuma and the studio mark. 8 3/8 diameter. Meiji period (circa 1900). This is a very heavily potted plate in very good overall condition. There is a large chip with an original lacquer repair to the side. This dish is from an old Tucson, Arizona estate. It was purchased sometime between the 1950's and 1970's.
