Customer Question

Hi.
I have 12 small square plates hand painted floral and rimmed in gold. The reverse side has the red elephant mark and 'made in Japan'. Are these Tashiro Shoten do you think? Time period? Pattern? Value?
I am grateful for any info you can offer.
Peace.

Hello,
Yes, the elephant mark is Tashiro Shoten.
I would like a photo of the plates and the mark for further research.
You can add a photo by using the paper clip icon in the text box where you write back to me. This feature works best on a desktop and is disabled on phone and tablets. Let me know if you have any problems.
