A moulded rinka-gata form dish decorated in underglaze blue with additional enamels in the so-called Kakiemon palette. The outer register painted in underglaze blue with repeating pattern of a landscape with small weathered rocks from which grow auspicious Pomegranates and Peonies. The centre painted with a Chrysanthemum spray. The reverse painted with a simple Karakusa scroll and a six character mark for the Ming Emperor Chenghua. See British Museum Franks 516 for a similar Kakiemon dish with identical underglaze blue elements but different enamelled pattern there dated to the 1670s-90’s.
The dish is in good condition with no cracks, chips or restoration. It has some kiln flaws including some minute glaze fritting to the underside of the rim, a production flaw. It measures 20.9cm in diameter and stands 3.8cm high to the rim. The footring is 8.6cm in diameter and the dish weighs 365 grams, reflecting its rather fine potting. UK Shipping is included in the UK Sterling price and worldwide shipping in the US $ price.
