I saw this pretty plate last year at a local antiques market and paid $1 for the privilege of taking it home. The diameter is 9 1/2 inches. The plate is on the light side, hand thrown. Not sure if the design is impressed or hand made. Image searches turned up nothing. A Google search of "Intaglio Terracotta Bird Plate" also gave me a zero. The terracotta that I can see on the back looks to be a pale color. I don't think it has any great age to it. I suspect it is a tourist piece.
Thanks for any info.
