New! - Lover's Eye Painting on an English Imari Plate


Lover's Eye original oil painting on an antique English Imari plate in the Victorian style with a botanical border and geometric motifs, a lightly scalloped border, and gilt details. 5.75".

The Piranesi frame is available in a separate listing. 

At some point, the traditional Japanese Imari style, imitated and bit-by-bit adapted to their own tastes by the English, became English Imari. And then at some point, the English Imari style, futher adapted by the Victorians, became just straight Victorian. I'm not entirely sure where English Imari stops being English Imari and becomes straight Victorian, but here's a piece on the border.
