Japanese Koransha Fukagawa Imari porcelain platter tray decorated in polychrome glazed pigments and gilt highlights with two birds flying over flowers and bamboo set against an unglazed dark brown matte ground. Two teal colored ribbon form handles are at the sides. Within a double foot rim, the base bears the red Koransha orchid mark of the Company of the Scented Orchid, founded in 1875, set against a white background. Gold gilt rim. Late 19th Century. 15" diameter at the widest point x 1 3/4" high at the handles. Very good overall condition with some wear and scratches in the brown matte ground and some typical production imperfections. Examples of this type of brown ground decorated Fukagawa porcelain can be found on pages 50 - 51 of "Imari, Satsuma and Other Japanese Export Ceramics" by Nancy Schiffer, 1997.
