Hi, Found this large bronze plate in a market.
Anyone knows something regarding period or origin?
Thanks in advance

Japanese, brass, stylistically late 19th/early 20thc but could be later.
Hand painted with resist then acid-etched. Usually productions like this have oxidized backgrounds to provide contrast to the decoration. Possibly yours has been polished or cleaned off.
