A Pottery dish covered in cream colored lacquer decorated with a silver rim and scattered silver plum blossoms enclosed in the original signed wooden box dating from the early 20th century (Taisho to early Showa era). The writing is very difficult to discern, it would appear to be titled Ume-moyo Kashiki, however the first line is challenging. The bowl is 19 cm (7-1/2 inches) diameter 5.5 cm (2-1/4 inches) tall and in fine condition, with some wear to the rim. Inside the writing is also not easy to read, the stamp reads Nihon Kogei Shokai no in (Seal of the Japan Crafts Association).
