Royal Delft peacock plate


Royal Delft peacock plate


I would like to know if this plate is a real Royal Delft and, if so, what year was it made? Is it 1944 as it says on the back, or is that number meaning something else?
Also, who is the painter?

23 cm diameter

Your plate is indeed made by the Porceleyne Fles in Delft, but in 1963 instead (year code CH). The painter is Mr. A van Gent who worked at the PF between 1953 and 1965. The number 1944 is a number for internal use.

Kind regards, PatrickĀ 

Thank you Patrick for your quick reply!
Nice to hear it's real :)
