Ancient Imari plates are treasured. Even fragments are kept, and some of the very old ones are even found in museum collections. Their main colors are cobalt blue and rust red. The designs in these early plates are found in nature and every day life items such as fence patterns, fish scales, thatch patterns and the like.
Our plate contains tortoise pattern, a pine branch-very stylized, the shippo and a diamond pattern. Arabesque, a curved vine effect, is at the bottom edge.
