HJ43   A set of 5 plates by Hamada Shoji.

A rare set of 5 plates by Hamada.  Nuka glaze over an iron slip with lines added of iron pigment.

Hamada made plates of this size in a variety of different patterns. All, including this one, are well documented and illustrations appear in books.

There is an unsigned wooden box with these. I can annotate the box should it be required.

These plates normally auction here for £500+ each. I would refer you to this piece from Christies which is a similar plate with a different pattern which made in excess of £1,000 + commission.
