Meiji period, 1867-1912. 3 1/4” diameter of deep section with raised foot. The top, 3 7/8” diameter with inner lip and unusually, overlapping the bowl. Chocolate brown body color with gold conifer needles, raised relief maple leaf and an inverted mushroom. Underside of the top with a gold ginkgo leaf. The form with overlapping top is a metaphor for the mushroom. Excellent throughout.
