ARITA UMAKUIKU Charger Plate (with stand)
"Umaku iku” means everything goes great. Yes we need that right?
2014 is a horse year in the Japanese calendar which makes the horses lucky animals this year. Notice there are 9 horses on the plate and this could read “uma (horse) ku (nine) iku (go)”. Uma ku iku means everything goes alright. It may sound superstitious, but this would be the perfect gift for those with starting own business or needing a huge success at school/work.
Arita-yaki is porcelain made in the town of Arita in Saga Prefecture. In 1616 the Korean potter, Ri Sanpei, discovered kaolin at Mt. Izumiyama in Arita and made porcelain for the first time in Japan. It was called "Imari-ware" in those days because it was shipped from the port of Imari.
Warning: Please use this product for decoration only. Do not use as a table ware.
