I believe this artist signed plate is probably from the very late 1800's to the very early 1900's. It shows a lovely Christmas scene evidenced by Santa Claus on the roof. The plate itself is unmarked, but the artist has signed the piece. I believe the signature is, S. Kuguya, but I am not sure of that. The plate is in good condition, but there is a small chip to the underside of the rim that I found only by feeling it. It does not detract from the front of the plate. You will probably have to feel it to find the chip. It is a very pretty scene and would make a lovely Christmas decoration. It measures 8". Please email me with any questions.
