Texas Hill Country Treasures is proud to offer an antique Meiji Period Imari Pitcher. The Meiji Period was from from 1868 until 1912 in Japan is called the Meiji era - after the name chosen by the young prince Mutsuhito, when he followed his father to the throne. Meiji means in Japanese 'the enlightened rule'. During the Meiji period Japan underwent a stunning development from a medieval society to a leading economic and military power in Asia. Imari is a style of porcelain named after the Japanese port from which it was shipped to the West, beginning in the late 17th century. Originally made in the town now known as Arita, which became a center for porcelain thanks to its proximity to kaolin-rich Izumiyama, Imari ware (also called Japan or Japan ware), took its design cues from colorful Japanese textiles of the day. The Imari palette revolved around three main colors—the blue underglaze, plus a rusty reddish-orange and a brilliant gold. This stunning example is hand painted with Cobalt Blue, Green, Red (antique Japanese red is similar to a rusty orange), Yellow, and Gold. There are yellow butterflies fluttering along the exquisite flowers. In Japan, this insect is the sign of a confident young woman and marital bliss. It’s believed that a butterfly is the representation of a person’s soul. Yellow can imply joy, happiness, optimism. There are many flowers & leaves in the white section while there are medallions in the cobalt section. Some of the gold is worn and rubbed, but otherwise this piece is in lovely condition. Measures Approximately: 8 3/4" at the highest point x 5 1/2"
