    I love this plate. I have absolutely no idea where it comes from but it is absolutely beautiful.

    I don't know how old it is but i bought it at a fair years ago. I'd really welcome any advice on its origins.

      Earlier than Deco I think. Art Nouveau. Might be Dutch, Belgian, French ???
    3. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      Put Italian in there too.
    4. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      It reminds me of Mario Salvini ... but the mark is not right.
    5. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      The Italians call this style 'Stile Liberty' .... 'Stile Floreale'.

      I do not even know how to describe the mark....LOL. but hunt around here for marks, or different Countries. May help, may not - just throwing it out there.

      It is Italian. Fantechi.

      FANTECHI Ceramiche - (S.I.F.M.A.)

      Egisto Fantechi set up the firm in 1896 as a producer of artistic maiolica in Sesto Fiorentino. It was a firm that included Egisto, his father, Ugo Zaccagnini, Francesco Grassi, Augusta Fantini, Luigi Ceccherini, Paolo Banchelli and Giuseppe Conti. They specialised in Renaissance style wares but got into this style of Art Nouveau around 1906.

      How much s your Italian ????

      http://www.archivioceramica.com/fabbriche/F/fantechi.htm

      "Nel 1896 il fiorentino Egisto Fantechi (decoratore in porcellana), con l'aiuto economico del padre imprenditore, rileva la fabbrica di maioliche artistiche "Società Industriale" di Sesto Fiorentino e in società con Ugo Zaccagnini (modellatore), Francesco Grassi (pittore di maioliche), Augusto Fantini (fornaciaio), Luigi Ceccherini (pittore e decoratore), Paolo Banchelli (pittore) e Giuseppe Conti (formatore), fonda la manifattura ceramica "S.I.F.M.A." (Società Industriale Fabricazione Maioliche Artistiche), specializzata nella produzione di ceramiche istoriate ispirate alla tradizione italiana rinascimentale."
