    Hi,

    I've come across a few lovely pottery items in a local shop in West Sussex where I live.
    I wondered if anyone could please help me to identify markings where appropriate and whether they are the genuine article or a replica?
    Images 1-4: cup set with blue possible Chinese markings and individual cup with red Chinese markings.
    Images 5-6: plate with Delft markings.
    Images 7-8: round trinket box with Wedgwood markings.

    Your Delft mark might be Royal Goedewaagen. These examples are from the book Discovering Dutch Delftware by Van Hook.

    The Delfts plate is Dutch, by Royal Goedewaagen.
    Goedewaagen was never actually based in Delft, they started out in 17th century Gouda, and moved to Nieuw-Buinen (province of Drenthe) in the 20th century.
    The brand name 'Royal Goedewaagen' dates from 2007, so it is a recent plate.

    Except on yours the scales mark is separate, which is how I've usually seen it. 'Waagen' is old Dutch for scales.
    Goedewaagen is an old surname, it either means good (reliable) scales or God's scales (weighing right and wrong).

    Maybe the red and blue markings could be Japanese?

    Very likely, but both that and the Chinese one are fairly recent pieces.
