Imari porcelain

Postby jbjtennyo » Sun Aug 13, 2017 3:26 pm

I have been wanting to post these for awhile now, and hope that one of you might know more about these than I do. In my search for netsuke (which is the only thing I REALLY collect, I came across these Imari dishes and just loved them. I have since looked for more that are shaped in an unusual way, but generally just find fish shapes. I am sure that this couple seen in the Imari set of two dishes is a Japanese story. I think the arrows on the man would give a hint as to who they represent. Does anyone know any more about either the story or this style of Amari--what the date of it might be. I can't remember if I took images of the bottom, but will check. I am away from them at the moment, so can only count on my image library.
I am happy to share these with you and a cup of coffee too!

They are lovely, Judy, and I can see why they attracted you. Have you considered Hikaru Genji and Lady Murasaki, (just to get the ball rolling)?

Thank you Piers! I am not familiar with the story. I just googled it, and it is a huge novel! I only began to read, but did look at many images, and they certainly seem to relate. I think I have some reading I need to do. I also think you probably hit the nail on the head so to speak. I wish I had images of the bottom of them, but will have to wait until I get home again the end of the month. Can you tell me briefly what you remember of the tail that made you think of them? Thanks so much again.!

Note: I have replaced the images with a couple better ones that I found while looking for images of the bottom
