Matching Japanese Meiji Period (19th century) Imari porcelain deep dish and cup. The center of the dish and the bottom of the cup are decorated with a circle of three chrysanthemums in underglaze blue. A blue floral band surrounds the chrysanthemums on the dish and is featured on the cup at the interior rim. A finely executed motif of gilt and polychrome flowers and butterflies encircles the interior dish and exterior cup. A pair of matching stylized floral cartouches are on opposing sides of each piece. The exterior rim of the dish features three motifs of gourds and scrolling foliage. The base of each piece bears the four kanji "Fu-Ki Cho-Shun" mark representing "longevity and prosperity." The dish measures 5 7/8" diameter x 1 1/4"H. The cup is 3"H x 3 1/4" diameter. Both pieces are in very good overall condition with no chips, cracks or hairlines. There are minor firing imperfections in the glaze and there is some rubbing of the gilt on the rim.
