Description

Earthenware painted underglaze in blue, onglaze in red and green enamels, and gold with a floral pattern in Imari style

White earthenware with very faintly blue tinted lead-glaze, painted underglaze in blue, onglaze in red and green, and gilded in Imari style. The warmer stands on a footring. Its deep curved sides flair outwards towards the rim. On the right side there is a bulge to admit hot water which is linked to an aperture in the rim, covered by a shallow flower-shaped cover. The plate-shaped top has alternately small and large arcs round the edge, a concave sloping rim, and a shallow well. The centre is decorated with a squat Oriental vase, flowers and waving leaves, and on the rim with a garland of twelve flowers with blue trefoil leaves below them.
