Imariyaki: Imari-yaki is a porcelain made in Arita region of former Hizen Province (today's Saga Prefecture) in Kyushu, Japan. Originally known as Arita-yaki, named after its production region, it became to be known as Imari-yaki when the porcelain was exported to Europe in the 17th century from Imari port, Saga. Ko-imari, literally old imari in Japanese, refers to Imari ware produced in the Edo period (1603-1868). Today the name Arita-yaki is distinguished from Imari-yaki: porcelain made in Arita is called Arita-yaki and in Imari as Imari-yaki.


Imari-yaki Cup:A refined Imari-yaki cup with the pattern of Nabeshima marumon.
Nabeshima clan was a samurai clan that controlled the Saga Domain (present Saga and Nagasaki Prefectures, Kyushu) from mid 15th to early 17th century. In the Edo period, porcelain wares produced in the Saga domain became popular, and the porcelain ware was referred to as the Nabeshima-yaki (Nabeshima-ware) after the clan's name. Nabeshima-yaki was produced exclusively for the Japanese, specifically as a gift to the daimyo and shoguns. Therefore, the patterns were often times taken from the Japanese scenery: flowers (e.g. sakura), fruits (e.g. pomegranate), and landscapes. Marumon (丸文) is the term used to describe the circular design.
On this imari-yaki cup, sakura (Japanese cherry blossom), tachibana (mandarine orange), and landscape is illustrated within the marumon pattern. The cup is designed for everyday use and can be used for drinking tea, coffee, juice, and/or alcoholic beverages such as beer.
