DEAR HELAINE AND JOE: I am hopeful you can help solve a mystery. This dish is 4-by-2 inches, and the seller claimed it was antique Japanese Imari. It is not signed except it is mounted in 0.95 grade silver mountings which are signed "Cartier" "Made in France" and has the maker's mark of Robert Linzeler, who worked for Cartier Paris during the late 1800s/early 1900s. Please can you identify the bowl as an antique Japanese Imari?
