Subject:Help identifying this (bronze?) plate

I have this 7 3/8" (bronze?) plate with two rabbits in relief. Does anyone know the country of origin and era it could have been made?

Subject:Help identifying Japanese antiques
Posted By: James Sat, Nov 06, 2021

Hi I saw your response to someone who needed help identifying a Japanese piece. I Collect Japanese antiques and need someone who can read japanese to help translate a few pieces that I have and can’t identify. I can pay you to identify them for me now and in the future whenever I need help with a piece. Is this something you could do? Thanks, James | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
