KO-KUTANI SQUARE PLATE WITH WAGTAIL PICTURE (Dealer: minakata antiques) – ca.1650-1660s, Japan.
Ko-Kutani ware had been the mysterious Japanese porcelain ware because of its unclear origin, as Kutani ware in Kaga, Ishikawa Prefecture, or primitive iroe (porcelain decorated with a coloured picture) of Arita ware in Saga Prefecture, or other. Then today, the most convincing theory is as Ko-Imari ware, since many Ko-Kutani pieces were excavated from its old kiln sites. But, the name of “Ko-Kutani” still remains and it’s also commonly defined as Ko-Kutani ware itself today.
Damaged a lot, but refinedly repaired with vermilion lacquer. A spot of glaze-peeling at lower right part. approx. 11.7 x 13.7cm (4.60 x 5.39in)
Item price: $600
