The pattern of chrysanthemums and paulownia arranged together is considered a noble design, and in particular, the 16-petal chrysanthemum and the 53 paulownia are considered the emblem of the imperial family. Hideyoshi and other samurai families also favored the use of this pattern. At the end of the Edo period (1823), Yoshidaya Den'emon, a wealthy merchant in Daishoji, Ishikawa Prefecture, revived Kutani ware, which had been discontinued for over 100 years, and produced this large flat dish. The original is in the Idemitsu Museum of Arts in Tokyo, but the owner, Sazo Idemitsu, came to our Kutani Bitoen and asked us to make a replica of this flat dish with the Kiku-Kiri pattern as a souvenir. The Idemitsu Museum of Arts is one of the leading museums in the collection of Kutaniyaki, and I believe that this piece was chosen as a commemorative item because it was considered to be one of the finest pieces in the collection. This gorgeous piece was painted by Yuzo Yamagishi, who has been selected for the Nitten and Traditional Crafts Exhibition, and painted the same way today.
