IGEZARA-The pie crust plates

This Igezara has the book shape forming a window or canvas for the decoration with the bamboo motif in the background. Inside the book shape are moon, plum blossoms, peony and a rock. It is 31cm in diameter. 

                                      No mark   Dates circa early 1900's

It appears that most Igezara were made during the late Meiji through Taisho period. 

Here is a good site which gives a history along with many examples of types of Igezara:
