Help ID plate (Meissen?)

Post by g.orlandini on May 1st 2018, 6:23 pm

I've this plate (22 cm diam.), porcelain, embossed and painted with a mark I guess should be Meissen. Can you help me to confirm if it's really Meissen and its age?

Thanks a lot

Is the mark as blurred in reality as your photo suggests?

If so, then it was probably done on purpose to try and deceive.

Hi Studio-pots, thanks for your kind reply. Photos I attached in my previous message were not so good, I send new ones with a better light (hopefully) and some details. I confirm the mark is blurred. Next to the mark there's mound, like a nipple, anybody knows what is that?

Thanks again to all for your help

I suspect it is meant to suggest it is Meissen but probably was made in Paris.

The quality is nowhere near good enough for Meissen in my opinion.

Thanks again for your kind help. Any idea why there's a mound (around 0,5 cm high) on the bottom? I've never seen it before on another plate.

Just to prevent the centre from sagging during firing.

Now I understand, it's a support at the center. As I said I've never seen it before and maybe (I guess) could be a precaution for valuable items not to be damaged in the kiln.

Could also be a clue to the manufacturer.

Sorry I didn't understand what you mean for "clue to the manufacter".

That method of construction, may be typical of a particular manufacturer.
