Rinkuro Kiln Old Imari Kinsai Chrysanthemum Hasami Oval Plate 5.5in
A stunning plate melds the exquisite patterns of the Imari style with a modern sensibility suitable for everyday tableware. Lightweight and durable, its wave-patterned rim elegantly balances vivid colors against a pristine white backdrop.
This is a more compact version of the 9.8-inch plate. Its intricate and fabulous design is further condensed, presenting a masterpiece that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand.
The rim showcases a medley of motifs, resulting in an enthralling and imaginative visual narrative. At the forefront, the blue and gold motif is known as the “Seigaiha” or “blue ocean waves” pattern. Although wave patterns are prevalent in global designs, this specific iteration, hailing from Japan's Edo Period (1602 CE-1867 CE), depicts waves in a fan-like arrangement, providing a rhythmic, orderly portrayal of the ebb and flow of tides.
The plate's center is adorned with chrysanthemums. Consuming water infused with chrysanthemum flowers is traditionally believed to promote good health, thus making the flower a symbol of longevity. The tri-line grid design, initially a motif for textiles, is accented with fine gold lines, exuding elegance and sophistication.
This piece seamlessly integrates the profound, timeless allure of Overglaze enamel decorations with a radiant, luxurious touch, encapsulating the authentic essence of Imari-style porcelain ware.
Its dimensions make it ideal to hold a modest serving of food or relishes. Its versatility extends to serving cheese, confections, and other bite-sized delights.
Rinkuro Kiln represents the brand of Ishimarutougei, based in Hasami City, adjacent to Arita. Upholding rich tradition, they persistently craft porcelain ware, drawing inspiration from the classic Imari style.
