Can anyone project an approx date on this famille verte plate? Thank you! David.

When you see pink enamel like this in a Chinese pattern, it is still called Famille Rose regardless of other primary colors present. If the pink had been the rusty orange iron red amidst greens and yellows, then you might get away with calling it Famille Verte (or the rutabaga salad you forgot in the fridge). :)

You don't show all of the plate's bottom, but what can be seen looks a bit like the Japanese plates that were used by Hong Kong and Macao transfer ware ornamentation factories after WWII and into the 3rd quarter of the 20th century. shows one picture of a plate with similar figures and says it dates to the 1960s, but without saying where it was made.

Hope this helps,
