Antique signed Meiji period Imari rice bowl with lid. The lid sits inside the bowl which is consistent with a rice bowl. These lidded bowls are also called chawan or tea bowls as well. This bowl consists of dark blue and red coloring with gold accents. It is hand painted and has a four character blue chop on the base. I found this mark and it was attributed to the Meiji period. Excellent condition consistent with age and useage. Please see comments below under condition.

Date: Late 19th Century

Marks: 4 character blue mark

Size: Bowl 4.25 inches in diameter and 2.5 inches tall. Lid is 3.75 inches diameter

Condition: Minimal wear to red design in body of bowl consistent with age and use. Imperfection to glaze can be felt on underside of lid as tiny raised bump of glaze. Tiny raised imperfection to underside of lid in blue area which can be felt. These minimal imperfections are consistent with being handmade and to their time of production. Minimal roughness to unglazed rims of both lid and bowl when felt. No imperfections to rim can be seen. This is mainly the contrast between a glazed surface and the feel of an unglazed surface. Overall excellent antique condition consistent with its age and being handmade.
