Ming Dynasty Ko-sometsuke Blue and White and Copper-red Dish with Garden and Butterfly Design


A Ko-sometsuke dish fired in a private kiln of Jingdezhen in the late Ming dynasty. This type of piece is the example called especially in Japan “Senkô-de”, using the technique Yuurikô (underglaze red), and it seems that the name is derived from the painting style “Senkô-Sansui (red in landscape)” ink painting with a pale colour of Venetian red. The motif was modified based on “Three Friends of Winter”, and this piece has an elegant garden design with flowers and a butterfly reminding the balmy Indian summer day.

There are no noticeable defects other than two short hairlines on the rim. It comes with a box.
