Arita/Imari - Meiji Imari
Meiji Imari reproductions, all are made to order

The Seiji Company and its traditional artisan skills disappeared after 10 years and so. However, it attracted western interest, because of its quite delicate and elegant work, and it served to decorate the banquet of the Meiji guest house, Rokumeikan, and just a few number of masterpieces remained. We can hardly imagine how difficult it is to reproduce the fortotten discontinued work at this time.

Although there were a number of difficulties, highly motivated pottery artists overcame them. They endeavored to evolve and meet new challenges. Meiji Imari achieved incomparable beauty of style, by its elegance and sophistication, which was realized by fusing eastern and western technique.
