Authentic or fake??? That’s the question. Because I have been unable to truly identify which one this is, I am selling it as “unknown” and at a reasonable price. This piece is beautiful and if you are fortunate enough to have the chestnut bowl that would sit on this plate (real, reproduction or fake) you would have a lovely table piece! As is, this plate/platter makes a beautiful addition to your table. I was told the bowl and under plate both have the same holes that allow for chestnuts, hot from the roaster, to cool faster. This piece measures 17″ x 13 1/4″ and weights a hair over 6 pounds. It is blue on white with a lovely Asian motif. Please contact me if you are interested in this beautiful piece! Thanks for looking!
