Lovely pair of Japanese Imari porcelain plates finely decorated in iron red, cobalt blue, green and gilt on a white ground. The center decoration is most likely a kamon or family crest consisting of a bell shaped flower surrounded by five elongated leaves on a scroll background. They are decorated on the reverse, in typical Imari fashion, with painted blue blossoms and scrolls. Both plates are fully marked on the center back with a Fuki Choshun mark, representing "Good fortune and long life", used mostly in the Meiji period (1868-1912). In very good used condition with minor imperfections and light wear to gilt as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
Measurements: 9" diameter.
