This plate is one of the six in the "Art Styles of the Past" series. It showcases the unique design of Kutani ware in the Shoza style.

The Shoza style is a fine and gorgeous style of painting that uses Western-style paints in addition to the traditional Kutani "Gosai (red, green, yellow, purple, and navy blue)" to create detailed and vivid pictures, and then applies gold on top. This style of painting is called "Saishoku-Kinrande," a multicolored design with integrated gold. The delicate and graceful Shoza style, which incorporates a variety of Kutani ware decoration techniques, is a sight one will want to forever gaze at.

Featuring flowers like chrysanthemums and plums as well as birds, the painting presents an asymmetrically arranged, graceful world of nature. The vibrant colors, accompanied by shimmering gold accents, make for an impressive composition.

The plate comes with a stand, allowing it to be displayed on a shelf or table. It is also suitable for use at special occasions.

Packaged in a wooden box, this plate makes an ideal gift for those who appreciate traditional crafts and interior décor.
