I bought this plate at an auction for $10. The auction described it as Japanese, and it features two cranes and a turtle near the water's edge. It's a 9" plate, and I would love to know more about it. I added a picture of the marking on the back of the plate.
Update: a friend of mine born to Chinese parents said the first symbol on the back of the plate is a nine and one of the symbols represents Hong Kong. However, she's very rusty on her Chinese. She's sending the picture to relatives for translation. Hmm? Is it Chinese or is it Japanese made for the Chinese market?
Does anyone know anything about this beautiful plate? Thanks!
