Show more images for this item.

The plate was decorated with stenciled images. Stenciled images were increasing used in Japan after 1868 as they moved toward mass production. Traditionally, Japanese ceramists hand painted each piece, requiring lots of time to produce many objects. Generally, stenciling was more cumbersome than hand painting. However, once the stencils were done, it could be used over many pieces, saving production time. In any event, both hand painted and stenciled images required skillful artists.
