We have a particular passion for oriental ceramics and works of art, pictured here is a large plate or charger, marked Fuku, (Fu-ku) common on Arita porcelain during the Edo period (1603-1867). This is a rare and beautiful example, in pristine condition but having been restored in the past. The restoration has been very expertly (and expensively) completed at some point in it’s long history. Polychrome enamel & underglaze blue on porcelain, circa late-17th to mid-19th century, Edo period.
You’ll always find an interesting range of oriental antiques here…
