Kutani Takasaka plate with scene from 47 samurai
This is a Japanese plate decorated in either Kutani or Yokohama in the 1920s (Taisho era), showing a dramatic scene (the box in the centre contains a samurai's severed head) from the tale of the 47 samurai, the most popular Kabuki play in Japan (after a real story).

It is 21 cm (8.5") in diameter and marked "Dai Nippon Takasaka zo" in Japanese in the back.

Excellent state without cracks, repairs or chips.
