I am very pleased to offer this beautiful piece of Japanese history for your collection directly from an impressive UK Imari collection (see my other items). The collection comprises several plates, chargers, bowl and vase dating to the Edo period and early Meiji period.

The name comes from the Japanese port of Imari, which exported the ware made in kilns at the nearby region of Arita. During the 17th and early 18th century Japanese porcelain was very popular in Europe and competed successfully with the Chinese. Blue and white Arita porcelain was copied on tin glazed earthenware in many places in Europe, of which Dutch Delft faiance is the most famous. During the 18th century Kakiemon enamel decoration was also widely copied in England. Although Japanese porcelain production developed its own styles, the influence of Chinese and Korean porcelain traditions can often and easily be found.
