I'm trying to find out as much as I can about this piece. I know it's old, but no luck in finding much info. I don't know if I would call it a compote, more like a footed plate...The mark is throwing me off. I've never seen one with the aesculapius staff on it before. I thought that was unusual. I've asked around, but no one knows much. I bought this at an antique auction/estate sale and I just really liked the look of it so trying to find out more about it but having very little luck with it. I'm fairly new to collecting porcelain, still getting my feet wet. Thanks

    The "Dresden" part is a mystery to me also and I didn't find any Dresden manufacturers, in any book, who used a caduceus. I am far from an expert from it looks English to me. It also appears there are four initials under the caduceus that looks like P.A.?.S. Can you read it?

    Bishop & Stonier, Hanley, England, used a caduceus mark in the late 19th century but this is obviously not your mark. Sorry I can't be of more help.
    The Bishop & Stonier mark from Steve Birks's great website thepotteries.org
