Early 20th Century Japanese Detailed Ceramic Kutani Tea Set.
Vintage, Early 20th Century Japanese Detailed Ceramic Kutani Tea Set.
Kutani ware is marked by vivid dark colours that epitomize lavish aesthetics. It is theorized that the long, harsh and grey winters of the Hokuriku region led to a desire among people living there for ceramic ware to show strong and bold colours. The classical five colours style is known as gosai-de (五彩手) which includes green, blue, yellow, purple, and red. The designs are bold and normally depict landscapes, the beauty of nature, and people, and cover most of the surface of each piece.
