Magnificent Kutani Porcelain Japanese Serving Bowl
$60.00 plus shipping
This is a really beautiful large Japanese serving bowl with a beautiful floral centerpiece in red, orange, yellow, blue, peach, periwinkle, green, and pink. It looks like a transfer, then there is very ornate banding in blue, red and gold in brocade or geometric designs, with heavy 22KT gold gilding.
I did a lot of research and as near as I can find out the marks says Kozan Kiln in Kanji characters. I was told it was most likely modern Kutani porcelain in the Satsuma-Yaki style. This measures 2 and 5/8 inches high and 8 and 7/8 inches across. It is in very good condition, no chips, no cracks, no crazing, and almost no wear signs, just one tiny mark about the size of a pinhead. This is a wonderful quality bowl. I purchased this at an auction.
