An especially fine Japanese Satsuma 7 1/2″ plate wondrously decorated with three highly detailed vignettes one of flowers, one with ladies seated at their leisure, and a third with warriors assisting a nobleman from a boat, all against a background that is a riot of patterns and flowers, all rendered with fine gilt detail. One can see in all the fine detail where Europeans found their inspiration for the Japanese influence in the Aesthetic¬† Movement of the later 19th century. Very good condition, Meiji period late 19th century.¬† $575.00
