    I just received this eBay buy.

    it’s a tin glazed 25cm diameter plate hand painted with a cockerel and with a distinctive monogram on the reverse.

    The edges are typically chipped but it’s in otherwise good condition.

    I've not been able to find the mark. The colours and decoration could be French or Italian.

    Does anybody have any thoughts?



    PS I’ve just posted re the Iznik style tankard - identified now.

    I don't know the mark but it looks like it's incised that goes through the white glaze/slip down to black. It that true?

    If so it reminds me of the way some Swiss pottery is marked though I have no idea if anyone made anything like this or if it's from somewhere else. There is a member here that might have known but I see they haven't been to this site in more than a year.


    Here is an example of what I think I'm seeing but not at all like yours.

    I get the feeling we have seen something with that finely painted cockerel before on the forum. Maybe @i need help remembers, she usually does.:)

    Cockerels are often Portuguese. That mark is familar. Bother.

    You are right. The mark is incised through the glaze. It’s not like any Thun I’ve had though but Switzerland is certainly a lead to follow.
    Thanks as always

    I just wondered if the mark could be this way around so there is a distinct R and A Plus I?
