Item Details


On offer is a vintage trio from the 1950s or earlier- cup, saucer & plate in moriage dragonware with the blue-eyed dragon, in very good condition with no chips or cracks. The cup is gold lined & the handle is gilded. The set was made in Japan.

Japanese ceramic wares called moriage were pieces decorated with applied slipware designs.

Several methods were used to achieve the highly identifiable relief effect best known to moriage. The decorative elements were designed separate from the body of the piece and applied to the existing piece or carefully piped on in narrow ribbons of clay after the body was made. The piece's designs could have been "slip-trailed" or built up by the act of brushing on successive layers of liquified slip (wet clay) to gain the desired effect. Highly stylized flowers, variations of pastel colors, gilding or gold paint, and applied slip decorations are all characteristics of moriage pieces.
