Imari porcelain of the Edo period featured particularly delicate and gorgeous paintings that fascinated the West and would later leave a lasting impact on the production of ceramics in Europe. Among Edo-period Imari porcelain, Enpo-era pieces are thought to be the most elegant. Based on its delicate shades and styles, Iro-e combines traditional designs with household pets.
The traditional motif of a squirrel on a grapevine symbolizes fertility and longevity and has long been considered a good luck charm in Japan. Here, we’ve taken the squirrel, once a symbol of fertility due to its resemblance to the rat, and swapped it for a cute four-toed hedgehog.
