Exceptional 19 inch Japanese Arita Imari porcelain charger featuring fierce dragons, birds and snow monkeys amongst bamboo, and a central stylized lotus leaf motif with gold details. An outer deep blue rimmed border with alternating village with horseman. Rare to find an Imari dish with snow monkeys. Mark on bottom reads "Wealth, Nobility, Longevity, Youth". In excellent condition, it measures 19" (48.3 cm) diameter x 2.5" (6.4 cm) deep. Dates early Meiji, circa 1870.
