Before long, the elegant appearance of Arita ware porcelain made it extremely popular overseas. The plate measure 11" in diameter and around 1.5" in depth.It features blue underglaze painting with multicolor enamel painting on top. It is signed on the back in red with Bizen Arita Maki, Drawn by Tei Zan. I belong to an online Asian Art forum where they gave me the date of early Meiji (which spans the years 1868 to 1877). It is in fantastic condition considering its age. There are no chips, cracks or breaks. There is wear to the gold gilding and age appropriate scuffing on the base.
Perfect for display or use, this plate is a must-have for art enthusiasts and collectors alike. Most items I sell are estate items, antique or used. This item is in the same condition as I found it. I do not do any major cleaning of above item.
