Subject:Shoki Imari Charger
Posted By: Paul Sat, Sep 10, 2022 IP:

I’m curious to learn as much as I can about this charger: age, origin etc. In particular, the symbolism of the 3 bars in the blue circle. Is this a Kamon?

The mark is called uzufuku (渦福) or whirling happiness. The happiness 福 character is written in a whirling calligraphy.
The mark is from the mid-Edo period, however it is very often counterfeited
With regards,

Thank you for your response:) Are you familiar with this decoration? Is it bamboo? Could it be a Kamon? | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
