Yoshidaya Style, which is one of the most famous traditional style of Kutani Ware, was first created by Yoshidaya Denemon in 1824. The four basic colors that are used within this plate are yellow, green, and aubergine. This style restored the painting style of Aote Ko-kutani. Yoshidaya painted the surface of the plate completely using only the 4 colors, yellow, green, dark blue and purple and never red.
Detailed figures drawn in red, fine patterns for the rim and some added golden ornaments are characteristic of this style. The detailed drawings in the Iidaya/Akae style are truly remarkable.
