This is a beautiful antique Japanese cloisonne charger from the Meiji era (late 19th century). The very detailed enamel depicts birds, bamboo, camellias, and other small flowers on a turquoise ground. There is a multicolored geometric border around the edge.
It measures 12 inches in diameter. There is an area of enamel loss on the back, as shown in the photos and someone drilled the edge of the lip on the back to attach a loop for hanging. The enamel has settled a bit on the back as well. The enamel on the front is in very good shape. There is one small ding or dent to the metal edge that does not affect the enamel.
