This set of two beautiful Imari-yaki plates from the Edo Era is in the Nishiki, or “brocade”-style of porcelain, characterized by the use of many colors of paint over the white glaze. Features breathtaking hand-painted designs in red, green, yellow, black and gold, in addition to the classic blue.

In the center of the dish in cobalt blue is a momo, or peach, which is an auspicious symbol of longevity and good fortune. Three peach trees also appear on the surface of the plate, which in particular represent protection from evil.

Radiating from the center are three blue sections featuring stylized chrysanthemum designs in red. The chrysanthemums are Japan's most noble flower, representing the nation itself, as well as being a symbol of longevity, peace and also protection from evil.

With all its auspicious symbols, this plate set is a perfect celebratory present!
