This Arita Charger is beautifully colored in the traditional blue and white. The heavy materal of the pottery makes this a very substantial charger plate, it weights almost 3 lbs. This is dated from 1810-1900. This plate is 12 inches across and 1 1/2 inches high and has many traditional designs, fish scales, bamboo shoots and many other designs. There is an edging of brown that is almost like a pie-crust edge. There are three blue designs on the back and two small blue lines that go around the base edging. A couple of pin pricks on the back. Very traditional blue and white. To you from Kansas Japanese Arita pottery!
