SOLD Antique Bird Ornament, Arita Porcelain
19th century Japanese antique bird ornament.
Handcrafted in typical Imari porcelain (Amrita porcelain pottery), this is a simpler style, without the usual red and gold overglaze. The porcelain is not pearly white and you can see that outside the cobalt blue underglaze the porcelain is a faint blue green. In fact, this is blue and white Imari.
The figural bird is fashioned like a wall sconce, with a sublime ‘sad-clown’ appeal. The inside pocket reveals hand molding marks that are left uncovered, a part of the long tradition of wabi-sabi in Japanese art and craft.
The artifact measures 8.5″ tall.
