Found this at GW this morning along with my McCoy piece. It's very nice and all hand painted. It has been there a while and part of a 50 piece collection they got in months ago. It's a Bradford Exchange plate and it was in a round wood frame like the alabastrite relief one I bought a while back. Don't know why they took it out. Oh well, 4 dollars was a very good price. I found a description of the plate on Rubylanes's website as they have one for sale. Not sure what all the writing on the back translates to. The warning about "not for food use" is in English though. -Mike-

This plate is part of the exquisite series of 12 limited edition collector plates by Master Artisan Zhao Huimin, which portrays the heroines of the classic Chinese romantic novel, A Dream of Red Mansions by Hung Lou Meng, written between 1755 and 1790. The book is one of the great classics of Chinese literature and is studied widely in China and by Chinese scholars. The book has a very large cast of characters, however central to the plot are the 12 beauties, one of them is pictured on this plate. This plate is of the beauty Pao-Chai, number one of the series. The plate measures about 8.5" in diameter and is in excellent condition. It is free from chips, cracks or crazing. This plate was produced in 1992 by Imperial Jingdezhen Porcelain in China and exported through the Bradford Exchange.
