Description
 
Very rare Somet-tsuke Hirado Mikawachi presentation three dimensional leaf dish dating from the mid 19th century. 

Enjoying vibrant underglaze blue finely hand painted scene of birds flying around flora and fauna to the inside of the dish and tastefully highlighted matching blue decoration to the outside.

This individual three dimensional large dish further enjoys a unique folded fine rough serated rim to replicate a leaf with highlighted raised flower heads to each side and realistic leaf veining to the interior and exterior of the dish.

This form of hand potted art would be made as a one off item and would need great skill of the artist and potter to ensure correct firing. Such pieces are rare and typical of the quality items of Hirado ware fired at the Mikawachi kilns.

In keeping with many such pieces it does not bear the artist's signature but is easily recognisible as an item of exceptional Hirado quality produced in the late Edo Period.

There are one or two areas of original firing light staining and some areas where the glaze could not be applied due to the complex form of this dish but the overall condition of this item is excellent for it's age and without loss or restoration. 

A must for any serios collection.
