This is a Japanese Nippon hard paste porcelain tea trivet. The date is circa 1910.
A trivet is the object that holds a hot teapot, coffee pot or casserole dish. When serving guests, you sit the hot pot on top of the trivet. Today, trivets are collected to use to put under treasured items in the display case or on a side table, such as a vase, particularly if the vase is filled with water and fresh flowers. The person likes the idea that a beautiful antique is under another beautiful antique and helps to protect the table top or shelf.
This trivet has a 6 3/4” diameter and is 1/2” high.
The decoration is one of pink dogwood blossoms and buds with yellow middles and green leaves. The edge has a border of black and gold geometric shapes. The sides have a small gold pattern.
There is a bit of wear to the color along the edges. There are a few flat glaze marks.
There are no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing.
The green underglaze mark is M inside the wreath with Hand Painted above and Nippon below.
I have other trivets for sale in my shop, along with many beautiful teapots and tea accessories.
