Hasami Ware Kurawanka Plate with with Overglaze Enamel Decoration


A Hasami ware Kurawanka dish fired in the middle of the Edo period. In the context of the small boats known as “Kurawanka boats,” which approached large ships on the Yodogawa River in Osaka to sell food and drinks to passengers, the term “Kurawanka” referred to the coarse blue and white ceramics used on the boats. This particular piece is a rare example featuring a standard design with a central five-petaled flower. The addition of red and green enamels adds an intriguing element, especially as the pattern follows the kiln crack.

Apart from a kiln crack on the front face and some peeling of the red enamels, there are no noticeable defects in this dish.
