    This is a large platter that has been in our family since I can remember. I believe it belonged to the side of the family that started the American Trading Company in Japan around 1890. The mark on the back of the platter seems strange. There is a chip in the platter that has turned dark redish brown.

    Can anyone tell me about this beautiful platter?

      I'd edit your title from Chinese to Japanese. I was told, and evidence does indeed suggest, that those blue rings around the base is Japanese. It seems to usually be only two blue lines around the base, too.
      Gorgeous piece.

      Thank you SpiritBear. Japanese does make sense as that was where My GGGrandfather started with his company. I chose to edit the description to a generic Asian.

      Your observations are greatly appreciated!
