This listing is for a beautiful Japanese Cloisonne turquoise enamel plate/charger decorated with floral branches and a pretty yellow bird and dates from the Meiji Period (1868-1912) . The flowering branches decorate the entire center of the charger which also has a colorful border design with brass/bronze rim. The exterior of the charger has heavily applied turquoise enamel.
Dimensions: 9 1/2" in diameter. Weighs 1.7 pounds.
Condition: Charger is in very good Estate condition, however, there is slight discoloration on the front just past the 12:00 position which corresponds to an old repair on the back of the charger. A damaged area has been completely filled and polished smooth by a professional restorer although the surface color has not been applied to finish the repair. Please see all photos as part of description. This is a very decorative charger and it displays beautifully with the discolored spot on the front barely noticeable.
