19th Century Japanese Porcelain Imari Plate with Painted Blue and White Décor
A Japanese Imari porcelain plate from the 19th century, with hand-painted blue and white tree, foliage and butterfly décor. Created in Japan during the 19th century, this Imari porcelain plate features a delicate blue and white décor depicting an artistic, balanced landscape arrangement: occupying the left side of the composition, a blooming tree is creating a sinuous line with its trunk and branches, leading our eyes throughout the décor.
The lower section presents a luscious bush with large leaves and lovely flowers, while the right side is adorned with a large butterfly surrounded by two smaller ones. The plate shows some cast imperfections. Bordered by a scalloped edge alternating white on blue and blue on white scrolling motifs, this 19th century Japanese hand-painted Imari porcelain plate will make for a lovely addition to any home décor, perhaps placed on a commode, side table or console!
