*There is very thin line - no problem to use.
I wouldn’t say it is cracked. when you hit the plate with finger this one still sounds high tone - hard porcelain sound. (When it sounds low tone, it is cracked)
Old Imari is probably the most famous Japanese pottery in the world.Imari ware is a porcelain made in Saga and Nagasaki Prefecture (former Hizen Province), northwestern Kyushu island.
Arita ware is the major ware of this region, but it is collectively called Imari ware because the port of Imari was used to transport porcelain to Europe in the late 17th to early 18th century.
For wares produced in the Edo period (1600 -1868), it is called Ko-Imari (Old Imari).
