Early Imari Blue and White Porcelain Plate with Ginkgo Leaf Design


An Early Imari plate made in the 1620s and 1630s. It is from the early days of Early Imari when it was co-produced with the Karatsu ware kilns. The glaze is transparent and covered with fine crazing entirely. This piece has a unique design based on the Chinese Kraak ware, combined with the particular Japanese pattern of triskele ginkgo leaves painted in the centre.

There are some minor repairs with Kintsugi on the rim and short hairlines mixed into the crazing, but other than that, there are no other noticeable defects. The surface is gracefully lustrous.
