This plate is an excellent reproduction of the Meiji era Imari designs that were popular in the mid to late 19th Century.
The plate is 4.5 inches wide, measures a little over 1/2" in depth and weighs 2.8 oz. It is in excellent condition and has no cracks or chips. It also dons two marks on the base, one of which is embossed on the enamel.
