This porcelain Imari-yaki square bowl from the late Edo period, is in the Nishiki, or “brocade”-style of porcelain, characterized by the use of many colors of paint over the white glaze. This particular piece features breathtaking hand-painted designs in red, green, yellow, blue and gold. 

The varied motifs include a plum tree, iris flowers, cranes, and Japanese mythical creatures. 

With its detailed, charming scenery, 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. This would work wonderfully as a small fruit bowl, or for serving food when entertaining.
