Dear Sharon,

Although I couldn’t find the exact design of your plate I do see similarities with these two:

https://delftsaardewerk.nl/bekijken/voorwerp/kunstmuseum-den-haag/214-s…

On the later one it is mentioned that on the back it has circular bands which we can see on yours too. The APK mark on the back looks good to me too.

I think there’s a very good chance you do indeed have an authentic Delft plate made by Pieter Kocx in 1701-1722.

Kind regards, Patrick

Thank you Patrick.  I have several other unmarked pieces that I think are from the same period.  Would you be willing to look at those also?  The charger I posted earlier is professionally stapled together.  I do appreciate your comments.

Verdict:

  • Delftware

Analysis:

  • Delftware, made between 1620 – 1850 Only tin-glazed earthenware made in Delft between 1620 - 1850 is referred to as traditional Delftware. Read more
  • 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
  • Mark of a Delft pottery/factory In the 19th century, a financial incentive arose to sell more new earthenware as antique Delftware, sometimes even bearing fake Delft factory marks. Read more

  • APK

As indicated by PatrickW this is an original early 18th century plate.
