This plate is a very early piece of Noritake, marked Noritake Nippon Hand Painted RC in green on the back. The plate is hand painted in teal, green, blue, pink, black, and gold, with raised moriage enameling. The decoration is Art Deco in style with grids, swags, and tiny block shaped buildings. It is 10" wide across the bow shaped handles, with a scalloped rim and heavy gold trim. The backstamp was used beginning in 1906 on pieces intended for export. The RC is for Royal Crockery. The plate is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or missing paint.
