Named after the Japanese port of Imari. Imported Japanese (and Chinese Chrysanthemum) pottery was extremely popular at the time not only for their decorative patterns but also their delicate and desirable quality. Many English pottery firms such as Wedgwood and Royal Crown Derby would replicate these fabulous intricate patterns hence the terms Japanned or Chinoiserie. The Oriental style was not only replicated on china but also extended to furniture..Please view the photos carefully as they form part of the description. Why our customers love us!
