Yellow Chinese Plates with Lotus and Birds
These plates are such a beautiful yellow, so bright and spingy. I love the pink lotus in the middle, attracting the attention of two admiring birds.
The faded golden rim and the lotus leaves are slightly metallic. There is wear to each plate, the yellow enamel glaze in particular has worn and faded to reveal the white porcelain underneath.
Each plate measures 8.375" wide (21.25cm) and there are no marks on the back. We are unsure of the era these are from but we are fairly certain they are Chinese.
