Rinkuro Kiln Old Imari Kinsai Chrysanthemum Hasami Oval Plate 9.8in
This exquisite plate beautifully combines the intricate patterns of Imari style with a modern aesthetic suitable for everyday tableware. Lightweight and durable, it features a wave-patterned rim that strikes an elegant balance between vibrant colors and pristine white. This plate is also available in a smaller size.
The rim boasts a diverse array of motifs, culminating in a captivating and imaginative display. Prominently, the blue and gold motif is named the “Seigaiha” or “blue ocean waves” pattern. Although wave designs are prevalent globally, this specific design hails from Japan's Edo Period (1602 CE-1867 CE) and represents wave patterns shaped like fans, capturing a rhythmic and harmonious depiction of waves ebbing and flowing.
At the plate's center are chrysanthemums. Tradition holds that drinking water infused with chrysanthemum flowers promotes good health, earning the flower its status as a symbol of longevity. The triple-line grid design, originally conceived for textiles, is accentuated by delicate gold lines that exude elegance and sophistication.
In sum, this plate seamlessly integrates the profound, timeless charm of underglazed blue with a radiant and opulent touch, encapsulating the genuine essence of Imari-style porcelain ware.
With its generous dimensions, this plate is perfect for serving main courses, side dishes, and desserts. Given its traditional and resplendent appearance, it is particularly recommended for presenting dishes such as sashimi, sushi, and tempura.
Rinkuro Kiln represents the brand of Ishimarutougei, nestled in Hasami City, adjacent to Arita. They remain committed to crafting porcelain ware, drawing deep inspiration from the iconic Imari style.
