      the back side reads nihon - nippon -japan

      people call this an phenix - flower . IMO thats is a mistake
      IMO it is a HO-HO-ZARA----- KARAKUSA --- KIRI


      ho- HO ZARA = HO BIRD

      what is a ho bird , this is an non existing bird, fusion between duck, pheasent, peacock and so on

      karakusa = tendrils = swirling of the peony of peas tendrils

      what is the flower in the middle , probably the antroposofical part

      the flower is a kiri or een kiku, =chrysantium or paulownia


      its almost mandatory to be a paulownia, because the empress liked paulownia

      plates are faked very often ,so i have to guuess around 1930 maybe
