A Japanese Imari porcelain charger plate from the 19th century, with hand-painted blue and white décor depicting a man rowing a boat. Created in Japan during the 19th century, this Imari porcelain charger plate features a delicate blue and white décor depicting an elegant landscape scene showcasing a man on a dinghy protected under an umbrella. A large tree on the right is leading our eyes throughout the composition, to the other side where the presence of a few houses is concealed under a line of trees. Light blue color alternates with darker touches, thus creating a lively sense of depth.
Imari is a style of porcelain named after the Japanese port from which it was shipped from, beginning in the late 17th century. The plate has a red and blue maker's mark on its back. Bordered by a scalloped edge adorned with flowers, mountains and geometric motifs, this 19th century Japanese hand-painted Imari porcelain charger plate will make for a lovely addition to any home décor, perhaps placed on a commode, side table or console!
