Antique Japanese Arita Blue & White Karakusa Dish with Chenghua Mark - Edo Period (Code 0490)
A Japanese Arita blue and white large dished plate of saucer shape. It is decorated in the Karakusa style with the distinctive cursive design around the outer part of the plate. The central area has pine and bamboo design, and the attribution label also suggests the floral tree is a plum. It is of earthenware body and dates to the Edo period, the attribution date of 1840 the label seems about correct, although these examples are often cited as being a little earlier in the century by current thinking. It has a Chinese Ming dynasty Chenghua mark to the underside, this mark was, somewhat confusingly, often used on late Edo period Japanese Arita. A great looking and scarce item.
Very good for period, limited wear. Specs in the glaze from firing, kiln frit etc. A small blip of excess pottery to the rim at one point (from production). Some roughness and minor chipping to the foot rim. A good example.
