Japanese Satsuma Chickens Charger – Yukiyama
Fine late Meiji period satsuma ‘chickens’ charger. The plate extensively decorated throughout with a gilt rim into a scrolling boarder with floral accents and repeating angular scenes within the boarder itself surrounding the main scene. To the centre of the plate a hen and cockerel enjoy strolling the stunning landscape with their young chicks while pecking at the ground for feed. A blossoming tree branch hangs above the birds with pink accents. To the ground multiple flowers with colours of reds and yellows mix between green foliage. The rear signed in gold with a black coloured cartouche in the background 雪山 Yukiyama.
