Imari Porcelains

at Freighthouse!

Freighthouse is your source for the unusual, special and sometimes antique items.   Today we are featuring a collection of Imari Porcelains.  Imari came from the island of Kyushu in Japan in the 1600’s!   It was wildly popular when discovered by Europeans after being imported by the Dutch East India Co in the 17thc.   It was so popular that Meissen (Germany)and Derby (England) created their own Imari patterns which are still made today.  

The geometric design on this large charger mixes so well into modern interiors.  Imari was again wildly popular 40-50 years ago in America, post war.

Finely painted underglaze-this sweet little pedestal dish is a perfect  accent for you small table. Japanese pottery is soft in the marketplace today so it is a great time to BUY.

Classic old Imari is cobalt blue, gold and russet red.   This plate has over glaze painting too. Prices on these pieces are less than half what they were in the 70-80s.

This scalloped edge bowl is so intricate and lovely. Wonderful to mix with simple blue and white too.
