Designed to hold sweet rice cakes at a tea ceremony, this shallow dish was produced at the Yashichida kiln. Its plant motifs were derived from tsujigahana textile, which combined resist-dyed, and painted designs. Produced in Mino, Gifu prefecture, Oribe ware took its name from Furuta Oribe (1543-1615), a feudal lord and a leading tea master.
Momoyama period (1573-1615)
