Please refer to our stock # TCR4891 when inquiring.
Sold, Thank you!
A large bowl made for the use of the Imperial family likely by the porcelain artist Denjuro wrapped in a padded silk bag and enclosed in a custom made wooden box. Inside is a large 16 petal chrysanthemum, outside cranes fly among tall bamboo and roaring waves with a triad of Chrysanthemum crests. The bowl is 6-1/2 inches (16 cm) diameter and in fine condition. These items would have been used by the Emperor on visits outside the palace, and left as commemorations as gifts for the host. They would also have been possibly used by visitors to the Imperial households, and again, retained as keep-sakes after.
