A massive 19th century Japanese lidded bowl
Our ref 331 We do not normally deal in Japanese ceramics but this magnificent, massive bowl was too tempting to let slip! Wonderfully decorated in the Imari palette with green dragons and figural scenes with fo dog finial to the lid, it demonstrates the crossover between Japanese and Chinese culture. It is extremely well painted and in excellent condition. 19th century.
Height 17cm, diameter (at widest) 14cm.
Dragon detail and close up of lion dog finial
