Imari style bowl with handpainted thistles, cross hatching and fruit - image 1 of 16

This handpainted Imari style bowl has a red mark on the bottom. I have not identified the mark so do not know the maker or age of this bowl for sure. It is rather hefty weighing a little over 2 ½ pounds. The decoration includes an underglaze cobalt blue transfer around the top on both the exterior and interior. The exterior is handpainted with red dots and pale purple flowers with green leaves. The interior has two fruits in the bottom. On the sides are panels of thistles with sections of cross hatching separating the panels. I believe the thistles are a rather unusual design element on a bowl of this type as I have not found another with them. To me the handpainted design on this piece looks a bit amateurish but attractive. It has a kind of appealing folk art quality. This bowl does have some manufacturing flaws but does not have any post manufacture damage. Please blow up the pictures and review them carefully to see the condition. This is pretty, unique bowl that would add a nice decorative element to a room.
