Subject:Temple on cloisonné plate
Posted By: fripou Sun, Nov 06, 2022 IP:

Hello to all Japan collectors and fans.

I jsut bought this plate (sorry bad photo from the ad on ibnternet)of a temple with a constellation above it.

I have never seen that before.

The constellation looks like Cassiopea but with 2 more stars to the left ; or like a badly drawn Big Dipper (which I don't think would be the case in a plate that must have ben commissionned or for a special occasion).

Can someone identify the constellation, and perhaps from that, the temple?

Thank you very much
