Large Japanese blue and white charger. Item 4096.
This very large Japanese blue and white charger is a testament to the skills of its potter. It has a diameter of 540mm and stands 78mm high. The hand painted decoration features three cartouches which show a flock of cranes flying over a pine tree with Mt Fuji in the background, a robin on a branch and a rural scene. A wonderful display piece, this would have taken pride of place in a late Victorian home, especially if the house was decorated in the Aesthetic taste or even the Arts and Crafts style. It is in excellent condition and dates from around 1880. If you are interested in this item, please contact me at [email protected] as it might be cheaper to ship using a courier rather than Australia Post. The charger weighs 5kg and when packed would weigh in the vicinity of 9-10kg.
