I saw some marks for Meissen and there were marks looking like this. The style is certainly dead on. But the marks are not the more common crossed swords but closer to the JR marks. In the marks I saw there was some inconsistency in these.
As well the quality seems very high and this looks like the Chinoiserie floral style they used (I like it more than the more flamboyant styles they did).
Could anyone let me know?
Also if anyone has time to took at my older posts  from July 23 which have not had any comments on identification as I would really appreciate knowing what those were. Thank you so much for looking at this.

I’m not finding an R mark for Meissen. It might be a Dresden factory in the 19thC that’s “copying” the AR Meissen mark in the hopes that people will mistake it for a Meissen piece

Back in 1762 a factory was founded in Rudolstadt Volkstadt, Thuringia, Germany that continued under various guises until the late 20th century and is probably still producing. The factory, during various periods used an underglazed blue R mark and sometimes in a style similar to this.

From the images your piece looks 1930s to 1950s but it is not easy to be actuate about age from images. However, they do tell me that it is not the quality of Meissen porcelain.

The last name that I have for the factory is from 1977 when it became known as VEB Alteste Volkstedter Porcelain Works factory of the VEB Zierporzellanwerke Lichte.
