The use of strong yellow, green, blue and purple overglaze enamel designs that combine geometric and pictorial elements characterizes the ko-Kutani style. Such wares are currently thought to have been produced in outlying kilns, such as Maruo and Yanbeta no. 3, near the town of Arita, and are among the earliest overglaze porcelains produced in Japan.
