Set of seven matching 5 5/8" diameter colorful hand thrown and painted Japanese Imari porcelain bowls with a central peach medallion surrounded by six panels containing alternating floral designs.
Underglaze cobalt blue is used as the ringed central peach medallion, as well as the scrolled design around the outer sides and rings on the foot and base. Overglaze enamels in rich red, green, and pale blue in the panels. Gilt is used on designs and the bowl lip. The bowls are lobed with a scalloped edge. The footring is glazed and so is most of the base.
