Grand Geisha Garniture
Our set comes to us from an auction house in England and is Japanese Arita porcelain from the late 19th Century. Arita is a town in western Japan that has been producing porcelain for over 400 years. After a seven year war with Korea in the early 17th Century many of the feudal lords, or daimyo, returned home from the Korean Peninsula bringing potters with them. It was these Koreans who were to start the Japanese porcelain industry that still flourishes in Arita today.
The covered jar is 20 inches tall.
