The many ways of Imari – Wileman 1890

Charles Wileman made many different Imari designs, and all are unsual in some way or other. Today I am saying good bye to a little friend – I have had a big and a small cup of this beautiful Japan Blue and Red design for.a while, and suddenly both decided to go on a journey to opposite parts of the planet 🚢 ✈️

This design is so vivid thanks to the way it was created with a mix of casually applied flow blue, very precise red transfer and beautiful hand painted gilt. I can never get enough of Wileman teacups!

You can find similar treasures here in my Antiques shop – I’m afraid this one is gone!
