Hello,

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images and clear, in-focus close-ups of the mark.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

Your plate with handle is referred to as a ‘tidbit’ plate. The host can offer small bites of food to their guest while holding the little finger handle.

The decoration on it of a cottage on a lake during a sunset was hand painted. It was a popular design on Japanese export ware.

The red Noritake mark with Made in Japan dates your tidbit plate to circa 1920’s - 1930’s.

On today’s market, this sells for a high average of $10 - $20. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $35.
