I corrected my mistake. Thought it was one plate until I looked again. Blue and red Imari plate from Meiji era. The other isn't Imari
but just porcelain also from Arita kilns dating a bit later, Meiji to Taisho era.

Hi peter what do you think of the age ? is it the other one imari?

by: Tim

Mark is dai Nippon meaning "great Japan." Plate painted in Imari palette made at the Arita kilns, the centre of Japan's porcelain industry. Dates to the Meiji period as this was the
time of great nationalism, hence the dai Nippon mark.
