A beautiful scenic lustre rimmed painted porcelain 7 ¼ inch plate from Japan. This plate has a picture of a colorful green, brown, yellow tree with a house and mountain scene. The sides of this plate are slightly scalloped in gold. The band has the appearance of handles. There is a gold guilt line along the lustre inner edge. The back of this plate is white and has a definite rim in the center with two rings inside. It has black writing in print on the back that reads Made in Japan N in the center. This porcelain plate when held up to the light is thin enough that you see the shadow of your hand. I do see less paint on the gold areas as though it is somewhat worn. I see no chips or cracks on this plate. Purchased at an estate sale, the daughter remembers her mother having this plate when she was a small girl approximately the 40's. This Japanese painting on this plate is such a beautiful craft which I wish I was talented enough to be able to do.
