Broad access to high-quality Chinese ceramics occasioned by the collapse of the Qing dynasty (1644–1911) and the dispersal of elite Chinese collections presented Seifū Yohei IV with models for both molded decoration, in which molds are used to press clay into shapes, and painted motifs. Yohei IV’s delicate white plums on the bowl are painted under Yohei III’s translucent blue “evening moon” glaze.
