Seto Were Taihaku-Type Dish with Plum Design in Underglaze Iron


An iron-painted dish fired in Seto in the late Edo period. An example of stoneware pottery created under the influence of Hizen porcelain is known as “Taihaku-type.” The plum blanches pattern drawn with iron oxide gives it an elegance, and the rim thickly painted in black tighten the whole impression. This design is said to be among the earliest of Taihaku-type, and it is rare to find. A masterpiece full of creativity that goes beyond mere imitation of Hizen porcelain.

The painting has partially peeled off, probably due to the difference in shrinkage. Additionally, there is a Gintsugi repair on the rim.
