Metal techniques that resulted in designs expressed in gold flakes or powder on ceramics were developed in Jingdezhen, China during the late Ming period (1368-1644). These techniques were imported to Japan and used for Imari ware, bold ceramics meant for domestic use, during the Genroku era (1688-1704). This bowl displays highly advanced metal techniques on a red and yellow green ground - two colors that reflect the aesthetics of the Genroku era.
