Large Oval Japanese Porcelain Imari Charger Late 19th Century
This showy very large (14 ½" x 11 ½") oval Meiji Period Japanese porcelain Imari platter has pretty scalloped edges and a lot of decoration. Each of the five panels are decorated in underglaze blue and overglaze enamels of rust, orange, green and gilt. Three of the panels contain pretty daisy like flowers on a vine. Two of the panels contain charming birds and flower designs. The panels are separated from one another by partitions of underglaze cobalt and red enamel overglaze, all decorated with floral and foliar scrolls.
The backside of the charge has Buddhist symbols in underglaze cobalt. The foot ring has blue cobalt lines surrounding it.
There is no porcelain mark.
Condition The condition is very good. There are no chips or cracks and it rings true. There are small amounts of gilt loss, as one would expect for a piece that's over 100 years old.
A very large, showy and attractive platter that people will notice.
