Beaultiful 10 1/2" plate, Possibly Tongzhi, would like to know if real please
I would love to know how old it it,
is it Tongzhi (that was the closet I could come, since I can't read chinese),
and what it was used for.
And the year that it was made.
Thank you.

I cannot see from these pictures if the body of the plate is older, but the Tongzhi reign mark and the style of decoration do not go together. The painting style is probably from later in the 20th century, a century after the Tongzhi reign.
