An Arita blue and white dish with a design of two horses gamboling in a meadow. There are small hills or mountains in the distance. On the reverse is a loosely drawn design of karakusa vines. The foot has the spur used in the kilns to hold the dish up from the floor of the kiln – however, some kiln grit still managed to adhere to the inner rim of the dish. We date the dish to the mid to late Edo period, circa 1780s to 1850s. It is in generally good condition – there are two early repairs to the rim that can be seen in the last two photos. The dish measures 7 ¼” diameter and is 1 ¼” deep.
