This old Nippon plate has pretty lavender and green colors with a tranquil scene. The hand painted scene has a house nestled in the trees on the banks of a waterway. The back has the green mark identified as #47 in the Joan F. Van Patten Collector's Encyclopedia of Nippon Porcelain - 2nd Series. It is the M in wreath mark - the M stands for importer Morimura. It is factory pierced for hanging on the wall.
It measures almost 10” in diameter and is in very good condition with no chips or cracks. There are flaws to the paint which I have tried to show in the photos. The roof on the larger building and some of the greenery on the left side have blotched paint. It looks like the paint bubbled and didn’t adhere well to the surface. It seems stable and doesn’t seem to take off any paint when rubbed. I believe this is a manufacturing flaw and not damage.
