I have inherited this plate, and assume it is a 1950's copy ... but would really like to know more about it. I have look and the marks of many similar items online ... but cannot find these marks.
It has a gold rim and background. It is 13" diameter and 2 1/4 " deep. I believe it is hand painted as you can feel the blobs of paint.

I have also inherited one of these. The gold rim has worn away, but otherwise perfect. Again 13" and raised enamel as if hand-painted. Any idea what it might be worth?

Yes, it is 20th century. The mark is a spurious Qianlong reign mark, added for decoration only.
Judging by the decoration and type of giltused it is possible that it is even earlier than the 50s, but I could not tell exactly when. Republican period, perhaps.
