This is a Japanese Kutani Plate with excellent hand painting. Unlike many kutani plates which were painted in quantity by labor, this plate was painted by artist with vivid details and excellent artistic skill. Very nice gilt work. Painting shows traditional Japanese folk story. No two plates of this kind are exactly the same in painting details. Dates to the Meiji period (late 19th to early 20th Century).
Excellent condition with no hairline, chip or restoration...
