Hi Peter, I would like your opinion about this plate. I know this is not Chinese plate, but I think house on it look a like Chinese to me. I think it's old plate too.

Hi Irina,
In my view this is an European plate. Could be some later Chinoiserie. Apart from the Asian looking structure in the background nothing points to Chinese. Clothing, hairdo, and the painting style all point to western porcelain.
Europe did also order European-style decorations in China, but there is a distinct difference. Yes, I agree that this could be old. The spots shown on the bottom, in the third picture, seems to indicate some age.
I would suggest you try to ask someone knowing about European styles. Do you know anyone?
