Handpainted Two cranes and a plum tree plate by Nakamura Shigeto
Two majestic cranes gaze keenly out from under a plum tree in full bloom
on this stunning hand painted plate with raised sides by respected
craftsman Nakamura Shigeto.
The overglaze design stands out in beautiful relief against the pure
white background, while bands of color adorned with classic Kutani
motifs around the edges draw the eye inwards and frame the scene.
The deft mastery of the brushstrokes and vibrant color scheme are
representative of this craftsman's art.
The plate is purely ornamental.(Not suitable for serving food.)
Hand-crafted in Ishikawa-pref. by Master craftsman recognized by the
