A set of five, understated Kyoto-Satsuma earthenware dishes. Each with decoration of five, 16 petal chrysanthemums - two softly sketched in gosu underglaze blue and three sharply sketched in black under the glaze. The backs undecorated. The 16 petal chrysanthemum mon has traditionally been reserved for imperial use and could appear on objects given as official gifts. Each seal impressed on the back (looks like it might be "Sozan" [not Sua's but a different character for "So"].) Appears to be early 20th century. Five would be the standard traditional set size in Japan. All in very good condition. Each diameter about 6 1/16 inch to 6 1/8 inch (about 15.5 cm)
