This is an exceptional Japanese nabeshima shallow bowl form & footed dish with lightly painted blue branches on white background. The back is painted blue with 3 flowers surrounded by blue foliage couple with painted blue comb border on the foot. It's a classical work & a traditional style of these type. The front side of the dish has some baked hairlines underneath the glaze, which can not be felt when running the fingers but can be observed at an angle. Otherwise it's in excellent condition.
