Query on origin and age of small dish
I have another little dish that I would like your advice on. It is about 4.5 - 5 inches in diameter (no ruler at the moment). When you handle it, it gives the impression it has some age, both the feel of the clay and the crazing of the glaze and the foot also shows age. Although no expert on 'aged fakes' if it is one, it has been done very well! It is definitely hand painted and the paint work is in very good condition. A few specks missing off the central flower and some of the gold has worn off the rim from handling. The flower in the centre of the dish is somewhat impressed and then painted. The shape of the dish however, seems to be a rather modern shape so it confuses me as to its age. I have also supplied a photo of the mark in the hope that you can shed some light on its age and country of origin.
