Kakiemon - (Ceramics, Porcelain, Japan) A style of decoration that derives from Japanese porcelain-vigorous designs of animals and flowers in bright colors with that asymmetry particular to Japanese art. The Japanese wares were first imported into Europe from the East by the Dutch in the seventeenth century. The style was much copied by the early European porcelain factories, including such English factories as Chelsea and Worcester. The name comes from a Japanese family of potters who worked at Arita.
