Japanese 19th Century Porcelain Imari Plate with Painted Blue and White Décor
A Japanese Imari porcelain plate from the 19th century, with hand-painted blue and white mountain, tree, architecture and bridge décor. Created in Japan during the 19th century, this Imari porcelain plate features a delicate blue and white décor depicting an artistic, abundant landscape arrangement: mountains, trees and buildings populate the entire plate and conceal the discreet presence of single man seen from the back, crossing a wooden bridge with the help of a large staff. 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 mark on its back. Bordered by a scalloped edge adorned with flowers, mountains and geometric 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!
