Product Description

An attractive Japanese cloisonné plate, dating from the middle of the Meiji era, circa 1890.

The plate shows a group of varying stylised flowers, with a solitary butterfly scene nearing autumn, with a wavy pie crust border edge of bronze. The background, both front and back is a light turquoise blue background.

The presence of turquoise allows the plate to be dated post-1880, a time when fashions were moving from tight geometry to minimal representations of nature. There is a little bit of nice mixed enamelling on the flowers and butterfly.

The condition is good, but with a repair to the blue enamel at one edge. There are some unusual stress lines (not cracks), which are slightly lighter than the blue. The back has wavy coil decoration on blue enamel. The surface on the back is a dimpled scale effect.

Size: 30.5 x 4.5 cm (12 x 1 ¾ inches)
