This is a set of three Japanese Imari pedestal plates, commonly used by Westerners to hold petit four pastries at tea time. Sometimes these small plates are called comports, other times they are referred to as petit four plates. The date is circa 1880.

The pedestal plates are not the same size. The smallest one is 1 ¼” high and 6 ½” wide. The largest one is about 1 ½” high and about 6 ¾” wide.

The rims are one design of blue and white. The pedestals have a design of blue and white stripes. Underneath the rim there is another blue design, with some highlights of gold lines.

The signature on the underside of each plate is a gold and red flower.

The flat of the plates show two fence posts with flowers in red and gold, green leaves and two flying insects in black. The same design is on the face of each plate, however each garden scene is hand painted as each scene has differences due to hand painting.

The porcelain is more like a soft paste porcelain or pottery, not a hard paste porcelain.

On one plate there are flakes, small chips and nicks, and I show a few in some photos; these flaws are difficult to see and are more felt. Another plate has a tiny nick on the edge. The third plate doesn’t have any nicks or flakes. There is gold wear on the face of the plates and on the trim around the edges. There is some age discoloration on the undersides.
