From the donor: "The bowl was made as export ware at the Arita kilns in Saga prefecture (formerly Hizen province) in Kyushu and was exported from the port of Imari, probably to Europe. Faceted bowls are common in Imari wares, and many are lobed to resemble chrysanthemums or similar flowers in form. This bowl has 12 flat sides, which is less common, and each side is embellished with decorations of flowers, floral roundels and lions. In the center of the bowl is a round panel depicting a stylized dragon chasing a pearl."
