Imari porcelain was made in the former Japanese Hizen Province and was exported mostly to the European port of Imari, Saga between 17th and 18th centuries. There are multiple types of Imari, though most would assume there would only be a single type based on its rarity. However, the most popular type produced was the Kinrande, its characteristics have a cobalt undertone with an overglaze of red and gold. Finding these pieces are rare but can be found at estate sales and antique shops!
Collecting fine china, antiques, and art is often as successful as you want to make it! Going to estate sales are the perfect way to find the treasures that you have had your eye on in the magazines, or even to finish a collection of a vintage place setting. Consulting others about pieces are the best way to understand and grow within this interest group, and visit sales together so you can discuss the pieces with a honest friend! Good luck, and happy collecting.
