Fine Japanese Blue & White Porcelain Dish - Late Edo Period
This very fine porcelain dish dates to the late Edo Period, the first half of the 19th century. It has a foliate rim and a beautifully painted central design in the Kano painting style featuring a pheasant perched on a rocky outcrop above a waterfall with blossoms and foliage. The border comprises geometric patterns with mon based on a waterwheel, similar designs being associated with the Kano or Miyake daimyo families. The underside is decorated with blossom and leaf patterns with a seal mark in the centre that we have been unable to translate.
Diameter 29.5 cm (11.5 inches). There is minor surface wear to the inner surface and minor fritting to the glaze at the rim edge, also a couple of insignificant chips to the surface of the glaze at the rim edge. No repair or restoration and a good ring when tapped.
For information: we sold this dish to a private collector in the late 1970's, over 35 years ago, and have recently been able to buy it back.
