Unusual design to the centre with a shaped cartouche of flowering and budding lotus spray which is surrounded by a geometric basket design, some call this the money pattern.
The sides of the plate are painted with lotus sprays. the rim of the plate is foliate edged.
The underside is painted with flower heads and the base has a six character Cheng H’ua mark inside a double circle. This is an apocryphal mark not one to deceive.
Excellent quality and design
