Subject:Help With Translation - Chinese Poem on Late 18th Century Japanese Porcelain Dish
Posted By: Clifford Nunn Mon, Sep 07, 2020 IP: 220.127.116.11
I've been unable to make any progress on translating the characters on this porcelain dish, but I understand from reading an article by Irene Finch that in the second half of the 18th Century, there was a fashion for Chinese or Chinese-style poetry on certain porcelain items in Japan. I'm not certain this is a poem, but am hoping that someone who can read this can provide a rough translation, and perhaps will even know the poem if it is a famous one. Thanks - much appreciated!
