Square dish with straight rims, with elegant indentation on each corner. In the center two cranes (or similar birds) walking on rocks underneath a pine tree near the sea. On the inside of the rims a continuous border of heart-shaped flowers, on the outside a border with diamond pattern, broken by one cartouche on each side, containing a house. The top of the rim decorated with a karakusa-border.

White porcelain with underglaze cobalt blue decoration. No mark on back, but 25 tiny spur marks in a grid.

Japan, 19th century.
Ca 1.5 x 8.5 x 8.5 in.

Rims a bit warped, glaze on top of the rim rubbed and dull, one foot repaired, some tiny scratches on the surface of the center, all consistent with usage. All in all good condition.

Cranes are auspicious birds
