This listing is for a beautiful Japanese Cloisonne black enamel plate/charger decorated with floral branches and a pretty blue butterfly 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 bronze rim. The exterior of the charger has heavily applied turquoise enamel.
Dimensions: 9 3/4" in diameter. Weighs 1.8 pounds.
Condition: Charger is in good Estate condition, however, there is faint pitting in numerous places in the black background on the front of the charger and the flower stem on the far right near the border has a thin line of enamel loss. Please see all photos as part of description. This is a very decorative charger and it displays beautifully with the pitting in the background being barely noticeable.
