In the late seventeenth century, the Nabeshima daimyō (feudal lords) of Saga established their own porcelain kilns in Ōkawachi, 8 km (5 miles) from the porcelain-producing town of Arita. These highly exclusive wares were intended as gifts to win favour with the shōgun and other nobility. In this lunchtime lecture, Professor Nicole Coolidge Rousmaniere will discuss the significance of these exceptional pieces.
This lecture is one of a series on “Collecting” held in collaboration with Japan House London.
