Edo Period, Arita Japan, 17th Century



The round barbed dish painted in bright blues,
the central roundel painted with the two-deer-in-a garden motif,
within an outer border of large panels of two floral sprays
divided by solid narrow panels within the barbed rim;
the verso of type VIII (Rinaldi), divided by a single bifurcated line near the footrim and at the rim,
each panel containing stylized symbols or jewels and dots;
the verso also with spur marks indicating Japanese production


Notes :

As the Chinese sank into internal turmoil,

the Dutch turned to the Japanese to supply porcelain, most in underglaze blue.

They requested wares 'with such flower work as the old Chinese porcelain used to have' (indicating Mink Kraak).

The main era of Japanese export of this type was from c1650-1681.

The pieces were of good porcelain, thicker than the Chinese,

without the usual Kraak moth-eaten edges, and generally with characteristic spur marks verso.
