Well look what else I found ! Not one but two more pieces of Imari. One is unmarked but the other has a mark. The mark translated to "Fuki Choshun" meaning "Good fortune and long life". Both were on the bottom shelf stacked together with plate hangers (horrible things !) on them. One has a chip in the edge, but it's mostly in a white portion that's not easily seen at first glance. It's probably from" said" plate hanger. The other dish was relatively unscathed but it seems to be thicker and more bowl shaped. Both have that great "ring" so no cracks. A little more subtle in color and smaller 8,8 1/2" than my previous post. Not as much blue and the design is more reserved. I really think all these plates came from the same place. Why they were put out a week apart I don't know. The reseller dummies (not dealers or collectors, there is a difference) passed these up too for some more cheap Yeah me ! Now if I could just be absolutely sure these are all real ! -Mike-

    Yep. It won't ring because a crack will stop the resonance as it travels around the plate. I took the hangers off these before I even paid for

    I pick stands up whenever I see them. The plastic ones are ok as long as they are tall enough for bigger plates and stability. Wood or metal ones are the best. Don't see those too often though.
