Octagonal Imari plate with phoenix, rabbits and shishi
Eight-sided Imari plate from the early Meiji period (1860-80), decorated in underglaze blue as well as overglaze colours and gold. It depicts four reserves with rabbits jumping above a stormy sea and four with "shishi" (mythical oriental lion-dogs known as "foo" in Chinese) as well as a central circle with a phoenix. A similar plate is featured in Nancy Schiffer's "Japanese Export Porcelain", second edition.

No marks, 18 cm diameter, excellent state.
