This rare plate offers a beautiful Nippon plate decorated with hand painted roses and heavy gold on a cobalt blue border. The gold boarder is raised with a dot, the plate is more amazing in person than in the pictures. This is a full size plate measuring 10 inches across. We found several pieces from this roses/cobalt blue/turquoise group pictured on page 108 in the Collector's Encyclopedia. Of Nippon Porcelain, Third Series by Patten.
The mark on the back is hard to distinguish on this plate but it matches the mark pictured with this group (leaf, Nippon , hand painted). MAPLE LEAF BACK STAMP: Maple leaf Nippon; found in green, blue and magenta. Mark dates back to 1891.Condition is excellent - no chips, hairline cracks, scratches or signs of use. Manufacture imperfection in the back middle. The gold trim is about 99% with a trace of loss on the edge - not an apology but noted for the sake of accuracy.
This has been a cabinet plate for 100+ years. Nippon porcelain was made in Japan from 1891 to 1921.
Nippon is the Japanese word for Japan. Nippon porcelain was made to be exported to the west, with designs specifically for American tastes. And was less expensive than most European porcelain.
A few firms continued to use the word. On ceramics after 1921 as a part of the company name more than as an identification of the country of origin. The plate will be insured thru the US Postal Service.Your satisfaction is our priority. Please contact me if an item is damaged or wasn't adequately described and we will do.
