Antique Japanese Kutani Ware Hand Painted Porcelain Rolled Edge Dish - Meiji (Code 2518)
A very attractively decorated Japanese Kutani ware roll edge dish dating to the Meiji period c1880. It is of porcelain body and quite thickly potted with a decorative rim and the two widest points rolled in for decorative effect. The dish has four decorative vignettes with a views of Mt. Fuji. Note the panel with the figures and that they all have their gaze captured aside a lone child seemingly oblivious to the event. There are decorative borders and lots of gilt work to complete the look. It is marked to the underside, however the mark is incomplete through rubbing and too indistinct to attribute.
Generally very good with minor wear. There are two fine stress hairlines in the center of the dish, you may just be able to make them out in the close up of the base and center, they are not going to notice on display. Directly to the left of the bird panel on the rim is an air bubble pop from production visible in image 7.
