Featuring a beautiful illustration of the auspicious pine (Sho), bamboo (Chiku) and plum (Bai) patterns, this porcelain plate embodies the spirit of strength, tenacity and hope. A pine tree’s roots are tenacious; bamboo finds its strength through flexibility; plum tree is the first flower to bloom in the late winter – these three plants are known to have resistance against extreme climate and thus, they become the symbol of resilience and perseverance. Hand-painted with a combination of sometsuke blue and silver pigment, this early Imari-style plate has an elegant contrast that will enrich your contemporary living space.
