Background of Chinese Imari porcelains
In the late 17th century, Japanese potters in Arita first made export porcelains with elaborate gilt designs to cater to European consumers. As the wares were shipped abroad from the port of Imari, this category of brilliantly enameled porcelain was conventionally known as “Imari ware.” From the early 18th century, Chinese artisans followed the Japanese example and manufactured similar Imari-style porcelain products identified by connoisseurs as “Chinese Imari ware.” Our refined charger is an excellent example of mature Chinese Imari Porcelain for the West.
