Asahi Pentax Plate

Hi all,

I came across this piece of studio pottery signed Asahi Pentax at the estate of a wealthy photographer in California. Any thoughts on what this might be? Promotional piece?

I don't know anything about Pentax making ceramics but it may be original or not (maybe pentax was added to the Asahi mark) Here is something you can run with! Vintage Asahi Japan Slender Red Porcelain Vase 1970s Vase | Etsy

Very pretty! At the estate or at an estate sale? If a sale, how much was it?
