We are offering this great matched pair of Japanese Mixed metal plates. These plates feature landscape floral scenes, one with a grasshopper amongst Chrysanthemum flowers with gold and copper and silver plated elaborated foliage. The other plate has a grasshopper as well but a different plant which appears to be a flowering vine again embellished with gilding, some copper, and what was probably silver plated flowers before the plates were overly polished. There are no makers marks but the plates were probably made by one of the better Mixed metal makers, unfortunately at some time they were heavily polished.
The plates measure 10 3/4 Inches (27.3 cm) in diameter.
