A pretty vintage Japanese ginger jar in the familiar colors of Imari. In a sense, Imari is kind of a misnomer because wares from Arita, from the port of Imari Saga, were heavily exported from the mid seventeenth century until the eighteenth century. Imari as we know it is still made today, but often is referred to as Arita ware, as that is really where it is from. However we in the west have adopted Imari as the name because it came out of that port so makers have followed suit! This one is marked as Imari, and no doubt made in the Arita region. It's a big jar at 9 inches tall and 8 inches in diameter, and is free of any issues. Very nice example! Circa mid 20th century.
