This 17th century large Japanese Arita bowl and cover is a piece of export porcelain made for the European trade that was conducted by the Dutch during the Edo period (1615–1868). It is decorated in the Transitional style, in which a stylized landscape scene is executed in underglaze blue on a white surface. This style originated in Chinese export porcelain and was popular in Europe in the first half of the seventeenth century. When, toward the middle of that century, the Dutch porcelain trade was carried out primarily with Japan, Chinese styles were used as models. This large shape was not widespread in Japan, but rather was created specifically to meet the demand of European buyers. The lid has a Kara Shi-Shi Foh dog as a finial. The bowl has an old repaired hairline crack which has been riveted. The bowl dates from ca. 1680.

For a comparative example see: Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Bequest of Dr. and Mrs. Roger G. Gerry, 2000 (2002.447.47a,b)
Fair. Then lid is in excellent condition but there is a large hairline crack running only on one side from the rim to the base which has an old riveted repair, please refer to photos..
