Can anyone help me identify this dish please?
I think it says Bocha but I'm not finding anything online.

What would the A be for then?

Wikipedia says "...1836, the Jean Fran├žois Boch company merged with that of the competitor, Nicolas Villeroy, and became Villeroy & Boch" but I can't see where A fits in.

And could my dish be older than 1836? It still has a great 'ping'.

I was just guessing. There's a Boch Freres Keramis also. I was thinking Boch "at" Luxembourg. Try a Google search of Boch -villeroy. It was just a thought...

I put a message on the V&B Facebook page and they very kindly got back to me with this...

"The stamp was used by our Luxembourg Faiencerie (since 1767) from about 1813-1823, before the merger with the Villeroys.
This cigar ashtray model 33 belonged to the so-called majolica production. It's earthenware that was covered with colored and semi-transparent glazes."
