We are offering an outstanding Japanese metal plate. We are not experts in this area but believe the plate is 19th century. It looks like a copper wash over a base metal & is heavy for its size (almost 1 pound). The metal smith who produced this treasure was a master. The raised scene of a Geisha tending her flowers in a garden! With the decline of the Samurai in the 19th century, many sword & sword furniture makers turned to producing utilitarian metal items to make a living. It measures 6" across & is in good shape (some ware to the copper)! We have not placed a reserve on this old oriental treasure, so bid away! Have Fun! We accept credit cards through "Paypal", personal checks, bank checks, or money orders.
