This listing is an absolutely stunning vintage chinese dish set, depicting a dragon and phoenix on each piece with a geometric border along the edge. Antique japanese famille verte footed plate with longfeng chengxiang octagon shape design. The exterior hand painted beautiful dragon and phoenix design. I believe them probably from the early 1900’s. The white glaze has a very light blue tint to it and the bottoms are rough around the edges. They are really nicely decorated white porcelain with key design border and hand painted phoenix and dragon designs. They key colors are, red, green and yellow. The hand decorated has evidence of a little normal wear, it still very nice. The center features an orange-red dragon and opposing blue green & multi colored phoenix bird or rooster in flight. The undersides have a green wave design and what look like red bats. The bottoms are signed made in japan. We think these were made in japan for use in chinese restaurants. There really are no utensil marks, no chips or cracks, the bottoms of the pedestals are a little rough but not damaged. The colors are mostly bright and clean. Overall, very good vintage condition, ready to use or display. On the back of the larger pieces there are three bats surrounding it. The larger ones measure 1 7/8″ high (almost 2″) by 6 1/4 wide. They is in great vintage condition, free of chips with light paint fading due to its vintage nature. One is printed smaller than the other but the picture is the same. The smaller dishes are rounded with same matching design. They measure around e inches in diameter, looks to be like a soy sauce or sushi dressing plate to hold grinder and wasabi.
