5 Piece Imari Garniture Set

5 Piece Imari Garniture Set

An incredibly rare, 5 piece garniture set in Imari. While the 5 piece set was more commonly made in China, this set originates in Japan. Second, it is very rare to find a 5 piece set still together. (This is the only set we have ever owned!) The lidded jars are 12 1/2″ tall and 6 3/8″ in diameter. The smaller vases are 7 7/8″ tall and 4 3/8″ in diameter.  

Overall, the set is in very good condition. Only one finial on the far right lid has been repaired and there is only 1 small chip on a vase. There are some glazing flaws that occurred during firing that are visible on one side of several of the pieces. It can be viewed as “blurring” or seen as a rough patch. This is not uncommon in Imari and is considered normal. The set can be arranged so these flaws are not easily seen. Sets like this were made to impress whether on the mantle, a sideboard, or a table. This set is a show stopper. Imari, Japanese, Circa 1885.
