JAPAN, Arita, Edo period (1615-1868), late 17th century. Large circular covered porcelain tureen, made for the European market, decorated in the Transitional style of the 17th century with a mountain, water and garden scene in cobalt blue underglaze. The cover is in the shape of a dog. Bears an old label on the reverse: DUVAUCHEL, rue de l'Université, 34, Magasin de thés, porcelaines de Chine et Curiosité. H. 35,5 cm. Diameter : 31 cm. Note : the Transitional decoration is first Chinese and was very fashionable from the first half of the 17th century.
