A good example of an “Ai Kutani” style dish decorated with a continuous scrolling vine of Peony flowers with Peony leaves and Buds set against a “frog spawn” type ground, which is typical of the period; see Volume II of the Shibata Collection no 347 for an identical border arabesque there dated circa 1670-80. The reverse of the dish is decorated with a gently undulating vine arabesque incorporating auspicious gobenka, flowers with five petals – see no 344 from the same volume for a similar reverse pattern. The dish measures approximately 20.8cm in diameter and stands approximately 3.2cm high at the rim, and is in good condition with no cracks or chips or restoration. Shipping within the UK included in the sterling price. Worldwide shipping included in the $ price.
