arita porcelain
by: stan

your dish looks like it could be Arita porcelain, I have several early Arita large dishes with a similar pattern, on the bottom of my dishes there are four lines around the base, three outside and one inside.

plate origin
by: peter

Hi Steve,
Sure that is possible, but only if it is newer. The decoration looks Japanese. Unfortunately, with the current faking and copying that is going on it is difficult to know what is made where with newer wares.
I have seen this type of decoration before, but am not sure where.

Thanks for the response Peter. I suspect it's 20th century and the broken area shows white pottery clay - not porcelain. Could this be Chinese origin using Japanesse images -

Thanks again for the help

Hi Steve,
I'm afraid I cannot help much with plates that are not antique or Chinese.
This one, if it is old, would probably be Japanese.
It could only be Chinese if it were from the last couple of decades, I think.
We cannot give you any values, but if it is Japanese and you need a replacement, I believe there is at least one firm in the US who provides replacements for a large number of plates, as far as I know, but I could not tell you right away where they are. Try finding them on the web, please.
You can consider a restoration, but it is only usable for decoration/display afterwards. The break should be invisible after a professional restoration.
