Japan Large Antique "BIRD CHARGER" Hand Painted Blue and White Porcelain

About

Japan, a beautiful example of a larger antique hand painted blue and white porcelain sometsuke Ozara crafted in Imari with exotic foo bird design. Period: Edo period, mid-19th century.  Reverse with original and appropriate Classic firing marks indicating an early Japanese work of art pre-1860. Quality: Very good condition, beautiful example. Dimensions: Substantial size for wall or table display or gorgeous entertaining appetizer tray, 13.75 inches diameter. Handmade and hand painted. Only one. History: In Japan some 600 years ago, huge, oversized dishes ”ozara” became popular among wealthy Japanese elite. These big plates were handcrafted at Arita, Kyushu Island, an early center of porcelain production since 17th century. These were crafted for feudal lords, daimyos and their magnificent banquets. By the early 19th century, a wealthier middle class emerged along with proliferation of restaurant night spots and popularity of large scale dishes became even more widespread and big, highly decorated serving plates were produced in increasing quantity. By late 1800s, when Japan was forcibly opened to westerners, Arita and other kiln’s wares like Imari, Kutani, and Satsuma porcelains became more available. They reached high artistic achievement as favored export art to the west. We have been dealing in authentic Japanese antiques including fine porcelain chargers, garden ornaments, lanterns and water basins for many years. Our president personally travels to Japan each year to meet his network partners who assist him in finding best examples. He personally inspects each antique ornament to ensure its old age, authenticity and quality condition.
