Imari Porcelain Hand Painted Gold Gilded Charger with Floral Center and Signed / Kosan / Kozan Kilns
Imari Porcelain Charger Hand Painted Gilded with Gold . It is 10.25" across. It features floral bouquet center design. The colors are cinnabar red with a dark blue and greens and yellow with gold trim. There is a blue paper label indicating that is made in Japan with a signature in characters under the glaze. My research lead me to believe that is Kosan or Kozan Kilns. (I may have the signature upside down.) The condition is very good. There are a few manufacturing flaws There is a peculiar black dividing line does not match the same outline motif on the left quarter. Plus that same bush line darts off to the right about 1.2". Minor flaws like this does validate that is completely hand painted.
