Dish with Kakiemon Enamels

Description Credit
Description According to tradition, the technique of decorating porcelain with overglaze enamels was revealed to Sakaida Kakiemon, the earliest member of a family of potters, by a Chinese official in 1646. Characteristic of the wares associated with the Kakiemon family is this dish with its plum tree, banded hedge, phoenix, and floral decoration in brilliant red, green, and blue enamels. Such wares were exported to Europe from about 1670 to 1690 by the Dutch East India Company.
