Not Bitossi. Maybe French, as tenpot says, or made in Portugal.

I'm fairly confident it's Picault

Looks like Picault to me also. Just one question though the dish appears to be molded, did Picault make molded pieces

Robert Picault

Robert Picault was born in 1919 and after studying ceramics at the Ecole des Arts Appliqués in Paris moved, at the end of World War Two, to Vallauris where, with Roger Capron, he founded the Atelier Callis in 1946. Two years later he set up his own pottery in the Chemin du Fournas.

He was a friend, colleague and next-door-neighbour to Pablo Picasso, and the two learnt from each other aspects of the other's specialities. Picault was also an accomplished cinematographer and photographer, and made a series of four short films with Picasso and leading show-business personalities of the fifties.

He used copper oxide and iron oxide in his glazes, and the bulk of his work is characterised by green and brown motifs on a white background.

Picault died in 2000.

Hi, I recently bought these plates in a local charity shop (i live in Rossendale). Having researched the RP mark, all I can come up with is Rossendale Pottery which would obvioulsy seem to make sense...but I can't find anything similar by Rossendale Pottery/Derek Clarkson. Do you think these are Rossendale pottery or something else? Thanks in advance.  RP mark Robert Picault, Vallauris, France  Img_2021

I just figured out this RP mark today by accident

usually I buy all my collection in Italy but I forgot about a few pieces I bought in Switzerland over the summer and they ended up both being French-made

Picault seems to often use the same colours and similar patterns, I believe my large piece is from the 1950s
