Chinese kosometsuke blue and white kraak porcelain dish (Dealer: minakata antiques) – Exported Chinese kraak porcelain ware dish as an order from the Japanese people in Edo period called ‘Kosometsuke’ in Japan (Lit. ‘Old blue and white’). Late Ming – Early Qing dynasty in mid-17th century.
According to the distinctive feature of such kosometsuke ware, those inborn “inferiors” of the glazing with air bubble or the chips of edge (called ‘mushikui’ (wormhole)) had been considered to be the factors of aesthetic in Japan as those are not the obstructive damages for the landscape. But, those inferiors (mushikui) of this dish are restored with gold (kin-naoshi, kintsugi) as rare case. In such fine antique condition as is, with hairline crack (3.5cm) and inborn kiln-flaws as seen.
