Imari ware is a Western term for a brightly-coloured style of Arita ware (有田焼, Arita-yaki).
In Europe the designation “Imari porcelain” connotes Arita wares of mostly Kinrande Imari. Though the type usually so called in the West is called kinrande in Japanese, and was produced for export in large quantities from the mid-17th century.
Export of Imari to Europe stopped in mid-18th century, when China resumed export to Europe. Since Imari was not able to compete against Chinese products due to high labor costs. However, both Imari and Kakiemon styles were already so popular among Europeans, that the Chinese export porcelain copied both, known as Chinese Imari.
Due to all the history background we understand,we believe this piece we have is from China. A Chinese Imari judging by the style of work. And came around 19th century.
