Each of the 4 dishes have identical painting designs, although they vary slightly. The footring is unglazed. The base is glazed. The rim is gilt.
There are 6 Chinese characters under on the base. The bowls were produced during the Meiji period.
Each bowl measures 8 5/8" x 1 ½" tall
The condition of all 4 is excellent. No rim chips. 2 plates have hairlines. Very little wear to the overglaze enamels.
The 4 plates show off well en masse. They make a colorful exotic display.
