Can anyone shed any light on this little dish?
It seems to read Martinet but cannot decipher other writing.
I am sure there are no letters missing.
There are 3 marks from kiln supports(?) That make the writing harder to decipher.

Any information received with interest.

I thought that - but couldn't decipher with confidence. The final 4 characters look like "UDON" - but can only find reference to noodles!

Have discovered there is a town called "Laon" in France. Maybe from there?

And an artist called Gabriel Martinet who works there - occasionally in ceramics. I might try my dreadful French and email him.

I wondered having looked at his website - but there were no images of ceramic. Any idea what the middle word might be? I wondered if it was the name of a bird in French - but my internet searching hasn't helped me there...

Thank you for those tenpot. It's an interesting style of decoration. I think my little plate might be an early piece of his ceramics. I like it more and more as I hold it.
