Red and white plate


A red and white plate, with a Chinese style decor. On the back, traces of pernettes and a mark. A few chips.


Could you tell me if this is an authentic Delft plate, and what would be the approximate date of manufacture?

  • 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

  • Unidentified mark Not all marks found on earthenware have been identified. It could be a ‘new’ Delft mark! But it could also be a mark that was not used in Delft. Read more

The plate looks to be 18th century, but it is uncertain if it actually Delft. One needs to see it in real life. Europe knew many production centers at the time and chances are this is not Delft, but another city in North-Western Europe.
