Aka-e (Jp.)

Japanese term for a decoration by enamels on porcelain where the red color predominates. The Japanese aka-e decoration had its origins in the Chinese wucai five color over-glaze enamel decorations from the late Ming dynasty periods of Jiajing, Wanli and Tianqi.

The Chinese wucai decoration eventually developed into the Chinese export decoration famille verte while the Japanese version became better known as Arita (region) Imari (export harbor/style).
