Seyei China (セーエー陶器) Porcelain of Aichi Prefecture
Seyei Fine China is made in Seto City, Aichi Prefecture JAPAN. The Seto area produces much of the tableware for JAPAN, in fact the Japanese sometimes refer to tableware as Setomono, or things from Seto.
This lovely display plate has the work of Saneatsu Mushanokoji. He was a poet, painter and novelist who lived from 1885-1976. This plate is considered "Showa Retro" so was probably made in 1960's or 1970's. The translated poem goes:
"From this road
There is no road I can go
I walk this road"
