An unusual moulded dish decorated with swirling ribbon like Shonsui brocades alternating with depictions of the Shochikubai. The central Mikomi decorated with a floral motif of two stylised flowers surrounded by a broad band of alternating cartouches in kakiwake style with auspicious objects, Chinese and Japanese Fans and a Whisk, and Cranes. The dish has a fuchi beni, iron brown glazed rim with no pattern to the reverse. A spiral fuku mark within a double square to the base and a set of four spurs in a Y shaped formation. The dish dates to the late Mid Edo period 1750-80 and was probably produced at one of the Nangawara group of kilns. It measures 20.5cm, approximately 8.2 inches in diameter and stands 3.5cm or 1.4 inches high from the rim, and is in good condition with no cracks, chips or restoration. Shipping at Cost.
