Why this is a
Masterpiece

The object is an excellent example of early Imari porcelain produced in the late 17th and early 18th century for export to Europe. Although there are plenty of Imari porcelain in many collections of Japanese art, there are few objects with comparable delicate and tasteful decorations.

History of the Object
Porcelain produced in the Arita region (Saga Prefecture, Kyushu) is known under the name Arita ware and also Imari ware, after the port of Imari, the place, from which ceramics were exported to Europe. In the early 17th century, clay for ceramics at Izumiyama in Arita was discovered and the first Japanese porcelain production started. Arita ware was produced in large quantities and exported to Europe from the mid 17th to 19th century.
