A fan-shaped dish that has been painted with colorful and realistic butterflies in flight. It has a lobed and gilded edge with a border of blue flowers. The flowers have added raised gold bumps.
The dish has a flat unglazed base with no foot ring. There is a stamped red mark on the bottom that reads MADE IN JAPAN.
6 1/8” (15.6 cm) wide x 3 ¾” (9.5 cm) deep x 1 3/8” (3.4 cm) high. Weighs 6.4 oz (185 g)
There are no cracks, chips, or breaks. The gilt is in good shape with only slight wear. There are kiln flaws, such as black spots and stray spots of blue enamel.
A colorful dish to decorate your home. I love the colorful butterflies.
