Beautiful, heave porcelain plate with center panel depicting a chariot drawn by dragons led by an angel - or at least that is what it looks like to me. The center panel is surrounded by six smaller panels - three of which are urns with scenes of couples in various engagement and three of urns with different scenes - one appears to be Pegasus, another seems to have battling centaurs, and the third black hooded and other figures with perhaps demons above. The background is a deep rich green accented with gold grapes and grape leaves.
Measures 11 7/8 inches in diameter; stands 1 1/2 inches high from a flat surface; and weighs 3 pounds. Item is in very good pre-owned vintage or antique condition with no chips, cracks, or other damage noted and there does not appear to be any loss of gold gilt. (sorry about reflections/light spots in photos). I have owned this for more than 20 years and have no idea what it means.
It is marked Made in China on back and the number 154 is inside a small box on the back. It would appear to depict Mythology, I think. If you have any information, would love it if you will share.
