A good, signed Satsuma dish with fine decoration. Center with key border and fan panels decorated respectively with court ladies, court nobles, Samurai, courtesans, tea ceremony objects, butterflies and landscape. The decoration encompasses the formal and the pleasure aspects of the elite classes. A polychrome floral ground and gilt floral rim border round out the rich decoration. Signed rather simply on the base. With this good quality of decoration, one could reasonably assume the artist may have at times worked in one of the more important Satsuma ateliers. Very good condition with no issues. Diameter, 6 1/4 inches (15.875 cm). Weight 11.1 oz (315 g).
