Massive Japanese Vintage Imari Gilded Hand-Painted Porcelain Lamp, Circa 1970


This unique one-of-a-kind massive vintage Japanese Imari gilded and hand-painted lamp in a breathtaking double gourd crackled fine porcelain, showcases two panels with creamy white background, one depicting two stunning elegant cranes strolling proudly amidst plum blossoms and chrysanthemums, and the other depicting an impressive eagle spreading wings amidst red and white plum blossoms, and peonies. The panels are framed by foliage on an iron-red background. The collar is decorated with two small panels framed by scalloped cartouches in dark blue, depicting orange peonies surrounded by foliage on a white background. The two adjacent towns of Imari and Arita in the southern island of Kyushu, with a history of over 400 years, are the birthplace of Japanese porcelain. Imari, a port city, was the first place in Japan to introduce Japanese porcelain to the west. The square-shaped raised base is in polished brass with eight legs.
