What do you think of this one -? We just had a submission from Joanne Bray over in Australia about an old nice quality looking Japanese Kutani style e.

Here's the photos: With that in mind, and your research about the above old plate with the red squiggle and blob backstamp marking being Minton of Staffordshire, I was wondering if the plate uploaded by Joanne could be of the same stable. To my admittedly non-expert eye it looks: I have no idea of the origin of it as it has just got a mark on the back and no words.

I just loved the look of the plate when I saw it. I have tried local groups in Australia on Facebook but to no avail on finding out anything about it. The gold trim around the edge is showing signs of ware and it is crazed but still in one piece with no chips or cracks. I am not sure what the black flowers are nor the little white ones around the edge.

Any help in identifying the mark on the back to start me in the right direction to getting it valued would be appreciated. I would like to know of a reputable valuer in Australia if possible , if it is worth getting it valued. If anyone also knows why they do not put anything other then a paint mark on the back of things? Thankyou in advance for any information.
