    I think the box is Chinese but the plate is Japanese, the red enamel marks, 3rd one down, middle row says KYOTO (Japan).

    Stunning plate Arocpk. Shrine, maybe its my PC but your link just showed me the kid again, he's starting to look less cute!

    Hi idcloisonne, the mark should be read from right to left in columns, not rows.

    Hi Fran, my bad, it should be fine this time.

    Shrine, so sorry! I meant middle column, 3rd one down, I guess we ALL have trouble writing accurately sometimes.... I think the important point was that it is Japanese, don't you think?

    Hi, idcloisonne, negative.

    Kyo-to (???, Ky?-to-shi) , compare it with the pic above.

    In case your PC doesn't show the Japanese char correctly, google Kyoto, Wiki has the answer.

    I'm very familiar with the KYOTO Kanji mark as I collect, owned, sold many Japanese pieces with that mark on it.
    As many mark are hand written, or impressed, or in the example I give you here is a piece of cloisonne by the master Namikawa Yasuyuki, who signed some of his wares Kyoto Namikawa. There are slight variations in each, because they are not exactly the same does not mean they do not represent the same words.

    If it is Chinese as you say, what does it say in the Chinese language?

    idcloisonne - I've no doubt you've being dealing with chinese/japanese porcelain for long time. You sound certainly knowing a lot of subtle details of the goods you collect. I've highlighted the difference below. Moreover, Kyoto is a two-char word in Japanese kanji, you just believe you found "to", but where is "kyo" first?

    The owner has specified the meaning of mark in his description. I think he's right.
