It is hard to believe this 9" beautiful Plate is not marked. The leaf and floral hand painted decorations stand out brilliantly against the cream background. The colors are green, pink, yellow and a bright blue. There is even a lovely butterfly. All the foliage, flowers, and butterfly are outlined in gold. A very crisp and fresh design. The 1/4" border is green with gold splatters. The condition is very good. There is a tiny under the rim nick ( very small chip) and another spot under the rim area that looks repaired by a filler. Neither show through to the front side. This Plate has some weight to it, yet translucent in the center. It is between porcelain and pottery. "Semi Porcelain" is my call. do not know the age. Would guess early 1900's. A wonderful display Plate. The Plate is prettier than the photos show. The shine from the gold does not show up as well in the pictures.
