Imari porcelain of the Edo period featured particularly delicate and gorgeous paintings that fascinated the West and would later leave a lasting impact on the production of ceramics in Europe. Among Edo-period Imari porcelain, Enpo-era pieces are thought to be the most elegant. Based on its delicate shades and styles, Iro-e combines traditional designs with household pets.

We have given the traditional, auspicious kachomon flower-and-bird pattern a twist by perching a brightly-colored macaw on the branch of a plum tree.
