This is a small, seemingly handmade, bronze (?) plate. Writing on top and decorative on the bottom. Lettering is worn on what I believe to be the bottom as if it is possibly an offering or prayer plate? It is 5 7/16”x 5 9/16” the dimensions vary to some degree width and height wise.
I inherited from my father. He may have acquired it in Japan or China as he lived in both places in the 1940’s.
Thank you for contacting Mearto. In researching your piece, I came across an identical one. I have linked to it below and contacted the auction house that is selling it. I am awaiting a response and will get back to you. I am hoping they can give us more information and possibly an idea of why there are two of these, and whether yours would be worth the same, since the condition is different. In the meantime, let me know if I can be of further assistance. For now, I am estimating the value in line with theirs.
