Hoping someone can help confirm where and when this was made. I believe it's French, 19th century. If so, is it early 19th century? Any help welcomed thank you.Desvres ? Faience cat Img_2170

Likely early 20thC, I never did nail down those marks, again your's isn't in the book,
but probably Desvres, almost identical to my cat, except the mark.

I always wondered if they could just be decorators' marks.

I wish I could offer an educated opinion, but I'm pretty clueless with French Faience.
I had a read of the thread you posted some really useful info on Denby. Sounded like a great place to visit.

On a different note, car boots shouldn't be too far away now and whilst I stopped attending some last year (due to no social distancing whatsoever), I am looking forward to the racecourse starting up again.
Will I see you there Denby 😊👍
