Edo-era (1850) Akadama Bowl
Edo-era (1850) Akadama Bowl
ONLY FEW LEFT IN STOCK, ORDER NOW!
This stunning porcelain Imari-yaki bowl from the late Edo period features an Akadama (Red Circle) motif on the outside with a colorful interior.
The Akadama (red circle) motif portrays a brightly shining orb like the sun. And so, this symbol also represents Japan itself, the land of the rising sun.
The inside of the bowl features a flowering red and gold Karakusa design. Karakusa, a traditional Japanese print, means "winding plant" and this stylized pattern of plant spirals symbolizes vitality, prosperity and longevity.
With its beautiful repetition of auspicious symbols, this bowl is perfect as a celebratory present or as a good-luck gift for you and your family that can be passed down as an heirloom. Sturdy and large, this would work wonderfully as a fruit bowl, or for serving food when entertaining.
