Major Meji

The intricacy of Japanese Imari porcelain is of the mind bending variety. Every inch sees detailed renderings - in coral, cobalt, and hand painted gold - of sacred cranes and symbolic chrysanthemum. A museum worthy work dating to the late 1880s, placing this piece in the middle of the Meiji Restoration period in Japan - wherein there was an emergence of the highest quality goods for export. This piece is signed Shinzen.
