A magnificent crane floats across a sky glazed with the lightest touch of mint green on this Japanese porcelain plate. The full moon peeks out just above one of the crane's wings as it soars over pine trees clinging to a dramatic rocky landscape. The crane, full moon and pine motifs make a classic combination well known in Japanese culture, symbolizing happiness and long life.

And you thought this was just a salad plate.

Some areas of raised detail were hand painted with gold pigment. The plate's rim was glazed with the thinest line of cinnabar-colored glaze. It was created in Japan, probably in the 1960's, then was shipped to Hawaii. The plate measures 7.625"/19.4cm across and is in very good condition.
