A fine late seventeenth century Imari vase of great scale, decorated in the traditional manner with floral motifs and exotic birds in polychrome glazes, with gilded highlights, retaining the original cover.

Imari porcelain takes its name from the Japanese port from which it was shipped to the West, a process which began in the mid-17th century. Originally made in Arita, Imari ware took its design influences from the colourful Japanese textiles of the day. Exotic landscapes, gnarled trees, long-winged birds and depictions of figures in exquisitely detailed kimonos are just a few examples of the imagery of Imari.
