Background of Imari porcelains:
In the late 17th century, Japanese potters in Arita first made export porcelains with iron-red, cobalt blue, and 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 18th century, English artisans followed the Japanese example and manufactured similar Imari-style porcelain products, which they called “Japan” patterns.
