The plates have a black background with beautiful hand painted flowers
These lovely plates were from an estate in the 1980s. The owner purchase in China while stationed in China during WWII and brought them back to the US.
I believe the backstamp indicates they were manufactured in China from Jingdezhen factory- I am not an expert -and after all these years of storing them decided to sell them. I queried many sites/ people for information. The mark identified as :
A Qianlong reign mark, presumably apocryphal
Chinese Republic Period /Early 20th Century/1920/1030s
** The red stamped mark reads "China, Jingdezhen, made" It also seems that the outlines of the flowers may be printed before being coloured in by hand**
Soup plate /dinner plate Bowl measures : 9.5 inches in across - diameter
Depth: 1 ½ to 2 inches inches on the inside or 3 if I measure along the outside curve from the bottom
Six (6) plates are in fine condition with no damage. Three (3) have chips on the edge. Total of nine plates. I do not know if they can be repaired.
