Luxury Mid-century Arita-yaki Aguma Kiln Hachi-Bowl, Japanese Serving Dish, White Floral Porcelain Tabletop, Serveware.
Arita-Saga prefecture is known as the first place to produce Tojiki (Japanese traditional pottery) in Japan. Back then porcelain ware made in Arita was shipped from a port in Imari which is why it was called Imari ware. The beautiful Arita ware underwent changes in response to popularity trends and the demand for it throughout the Edo period, which lasted for 250 years. Arita’s kilns were set up in the 17th century and they surely influenced some early Orientalizing wares produced by porcelain manufactories at Meissen, Chantilly, or later at Vincennes.
Size: Diameter 7”, 2 ½” high (18 cm D x 6 cm H).
Provenance: Arita, Japan.

P.S. I have seen that some websites listed this particular stamp as “Gozan-Gama, Gifu marks”. It is not. We have lived nearby Arita for many years.
