This set of 5 matching porcelain dishes with flying cranes pattern dates from the late 19th through the early 20th Century in China.

Each dish measures about 6 1/8 inches in diameter.

The dishes are in generally good condition with minor edge roughness or rim frits as often found with this type of delicate thin porcelain.

The pattern of six flying cranes is transfer printed rather than hand painted: a type of detailing that became popular in the 19th century although it originated slightly earlier than that. In China it was used in the early 20th Century (Republic Period) and it's use ended about WWII.
