Dish. Decorated with maple leaves over rushing stream. Made of porcelain decorated in underglaze blue and coloured overglaze enamels. Nabeshima ware.
- Diameter: 20.5 centimetres
This dish is typical of peak period Nabeshima production at the official domain kilns in Okawachi-yama during 1700 to 1730. It is most likely that this dish with autumn leaves floating in a river is a reference to a poem regarding Tatsugawa river in autumn (Kokinshu number 283).
