Show more images for this item.

Koransha is a preeminent pottery company in Japan, winning numerous awards. They have a long history of providing excellent ceramics. This plate displays a skillful execution of the iroe techniques, for which Imari porcelain is famous. The multi-colored flowers were hand painted on the surface of glazed porcelain, and later fired again at a lower temperature so that the colored glaze melts onto the underglaze. This plate makes a wonderful display piece in any home or office.
