About

Yoshidaya (1824-31) is one of the early 19th century Kutani kilns, which aimed at reviving the Ko-Kutani ware that was believed to have been produced in the region in the 17th century. New scholarship has established that most of the so-called Ko-Kutani ware was in fact made in Arita in Kyûshû. Of the four major 'revived Kutani' schools, Yoshidaya kiln produced overglaze-enamel wares called 'aode' ('blue type'), in which blue, green and brown colours dominate the design.
