Good morning,

Interesting question, a similar design is displayed at the Museum in Arnhem:

But in my quest to obtain an item by Johannes Knotter (for my Porceleyne Fles collection) I was informed by the author of this website that a mark by Knotter is not known:…

I can now clearly see that my plate was an imitation but I found another similar plate with a different mark that looks a lot like yours and that was unfortunately also an imitation:…

So based on my previous experience with this design and the marks on the underside of the plate I'm swaying towards a reproduction. Maybe experts on this platform could confirm this?

Kind regards,

  • Tin-glazed earthenware Earthenware with a glaze to which tin oxide has been added to make it opaque white. Delftware produced before 1850 is always covered with a tin glaze. Read more
  • Hand-painted An important characteristic of authentic Delftware is that it is hand-painted. Printing techniques do not occur on this earthenware. Read more
  • Possibly false mark It is not always possible to confirm whether a mark is authentic, as ‘older’ marks were added to earthenware in the 19th century. Read more

Dear Patrick, thank you for your extensive reply to these plates, so helpful! The IK mark of Knotter was used in an earlier period then the pattern on this dish. I would also lean towards a reproduction. 

French copies around 1900 with a fake mark.

Kind regards,


Thank you all very much for your detailed responses! We will enjoy them as colorful reproductions.
