Since these plates were picked up at a thrift store, I don't know much about them. Two of the plates had taped on, typed notes that they were over 50 years old. however, the plates were very dirty and the notes came off when I was washing the plates. Each plate has an approximate 6.75" diameter. They are all in good vintage condition...no chips, cracks, or repairs. There is some pitting and there is some wear to the gold trim.
Thrift store purchase....donated by someone in Jr. League.
Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a set of three chinese hand painted porcelain plates, depicting birds on branches among flowers and foliage. The rims are gloss gilded, therefore the production date is definitely after 1880. The quality of the painting is average, the date character in the inscription misses the counterpart, I assume 1934 is correct. The artist seal is too blurred, impossible to decipher. The six character seal mark at the underside most likely refers to a manufacturer in Jing Zhen. Similar plates have been offered and sold at auction. The estimate is based on auction results. As always "asking prices" in the trade can be higher and vary.
