This gorgeous vintage Imari porcelain soap dish is an unusual find. It is from an estate sale and I believe it dates to the 1950s or possibly earlier. On the inside, it features a pair of beautiful peacocks of Birds of Paradise heavily accented in gold gilt. They are surrounded by lovely flowers. The front of the piece has another beautiful bouquet of flowers. The colors include shades of pink, red, yellow, blue, green, black, and white on a cream background. The leaves and flowers are also accented with gold gilt and there is gilt trim around the scalloped rim.

The dish measures approximately 5 5/16 inches long, 3 1/2 inches wide, and 1 3/8 inches high. It weighs 1/2 pound and is backstamped Made In Japan in Red Letters. There a raised and grooved area in the center to help the soap dry out better. It has wonderful overall crazing which gives character to pieces of this age, a bit of wear top the gilt trim around its rim, and a very tiny bit of shelf wear on the bottom. No chips, cracks, or other issues. The colors are vivid and unfaded and there is a nice high glaze. The peacocks and flower design has lots of gorgeous little details. Please view both photos. The perfect accent for your elegant bathroom!

Please understand that vintage and antique items, although they may be in great condition, are still not new, and may have the usual imperfections that come with age. Please contact me before bidding or purchasing as I am happy to answer your questions.
I am located in a remote rural area and only go to the bank a few times a year, so I’m sorry that I cannot take checks or money orders. Payment is due at close of sale. Failure to pay within 5 days may result in negative feedback and item being relisted.
I ship within the U.S.A. only, no APO/FPO please. Buyer pays shipping, handling, and insurance if desired. If shipping and handling charges are not specified, please email me with your zip code and the item you are interested in and I will give you a quote. Your item will be shipped USPS Priority Mail only, which includes free tracking and delivery confirmation. Sorry I am not set up to ship by other methods or to other countries. Handling includes the cost of bubble wrap and supplies.
I do my best to pack well and still keep costs down. Please remember that glass and pottery items can be quite heavy. I will combine shipping wherever possible to save you money, but this is at my discretion, depending on the box and item sizes and weights, for instance I can’t ship delicate porcelain with heavy pottery. Insurance is highly recommended as I cannot be responsible for loss or breakage done in the mail.
