Sorry to say I don't know the maker but it looks not to have traveled far to get to you in Italy. I would guess it to be Italian/Austrian/German. You can look up the endless series of factories online, there are several sites dedicated to makers showing pictures of the company stamps. Normally those are sorted by country.

As for what it is and date. Its a hand painted cabinet plate in the aesthetic movement style. Everything Japanese was in fashion in Europe during the 1880's and this fits right into that style. A nice thing.

The mark could be a hot-air balloon with a man below? Could also be English china?

Although very tempting to agree with you I think the mark is a stylized shield rather than a hot air balloon and I would be very surprised if it was English.

Agreed, the mark looks like a shield to me too, with a family's or Province's armorial design on it. And with an orb or other Christian symbol above it. Reminds me of 19thC Italian markings. Worth checking on this Marks site for it...

The embossed design is reminiscent of early Capodimonte pottery, so maybe start there.

I agree with both of you, the mark could be a shield.
If I turn the mark upside down I can see a bridge with arches and below the stream of a river. Too much imagination?
