Antique Chinese Plate

(Lahore, Pakistan)

I have recently purchased this plate and was told that it was Chinese Imari, Qianlong (Eighteenth Century). I am not convinced. Please help me identify this correctly?

age marks

I can't see any signs of age on your plate, the ones I have, show signs of age, areas on the plate missing glaze or rust spots in the glaze from age, I don't see that in your plate, maybe its the photos?

I looked on the bottom of my plates and there is 3 blue rings around the outside of the base and 1 on the inside, sorry for the mix up.

Hi, I have several early Japanese Arita dishes, most of the early Meiji dishes have 4 lines on the bottom, two on the outside of the base and two on the inside of the base, google Japanese, Arita porcelain and get a lots of information. the town Imari is right next to Arita, and they both copied each other, yours looks to be Arita Imari, early Meiji.

Japanese plate
by: peter

Beautiful plate, but not Chinese. This is Japanese.
I doubt it is Imari, but don't know much about Japanese porcelain patterns.
I recommend you ask at, they have people specialized on Japanese ceramics.
