Imari/Arita Japanese Imari charger, signed and dated (1840). Fantastic antique Imari/Arita charger that has a blue underglaze decoration on all surfaces. Diameter is 16" and it has a slightly (~") raised foot on its underside. This small foot also has two thin blue lines circumscribing it and there is a third line on the underside of the rim (which is just barely visible in the photos). The area, where each of the green spokes radiating from the central medallion meets the rim, is slightly indented (and hard to describe). Artist-signed on the underside and in excellent condition. Has a certificate of authenticity from the gallery in Japan (Yamanaka and Co., Ltd.) where it was purchased. The signed certificate says: "Antique: Japanese Imari porcelain large plate with conventional flower design in blue glaze. Artist: unknown; Date: 1840". An impressive piece! SOLD. (#C259)
