Found this 12" x 11" dish at GW today. It is Japanese Imari but not the typical cobalt and red on a white background. Instead it has a pale celadon green background with a blue design. Termed "Ao Imari "(blue/green Imari) , Shoki Imari, used underglazed cobalt blue painting that oftentimes borrowed from Chinese motifs, and was made in the Arita kilns near the port of Imari from the 17th Century. Examples are fairly rare with the green background rather than the standard porcelain white background. This one has an unusual shape. The design is a landscape but I can't seem to make out what that object is in the foreground. It sure is strange! -Mike-
