This 22-centimeter-diameter Japanese plate is in the Kinrande style, which means “golden brocade”.
Made in the Arita kiln, it dates from the 18th century. Its cobalt-blue and iron-red decoration is enhanced by gold.
The basin of the plate is adorned with floral motifs, with the Chrisanthemum, the imperial flower par excellence, at the center.
Myriam’s view: The discreet Kintsugi matchs perfectly with the decor, bringing just the right amount of elegance to this very old piece.
