Subject:Japanese export? (porcelain plate)

so, I got 5 plates years ago at an auction. labeled dessert plates. a bit of oriental look, but something is off. cleaning through the house, I got stuck again. what are these plates?
I saw similar, but more modern imported vy the Sadek Porcelain company (starting with 40's).
On the back of the plates, I have some embossed numbers (not on all the plates and not the same numbers on the existing plates) and also some hand writing 5 digits numbers which I think is the pattern number (very fine hand writing, on red ink most likely from factory).
not sure to date or to pin point the origin.
japanese? chinese? 1930's? later?
european japonisme perhaps?
