French Faience ? Empty French Faience ?

I believe this English regimental plate dates to 1908-1922...possibly tin-glazed earthenware? I think the plate is early 20th century because the “19th (Queen Alexandra's Own Royal) Hussars” was the name of the regiment used only between 1908 to 1922. It was stationed in England after 1902 and spent the 1914-18 War in France. Can anyone identify the origin/maker? Thank you.

Most unusual to have an English regimental crest and name.
Yes Faience from Desvres in the "Decor Rouen" style.
A very minimal mark, but almost certainly one of the many
obscure Fourmaintraux marks.
Wonder if it was a comission from the factory after WW1?
