Hello again...I hope everyone is well throughout this pandemic. I need some help narrowing down the year and maker on these pieces. The first photo is a soup toureen I believe. It has the cut-out for the ladle and the second photo shows the mark (sorry about the flash). the mark is within a wreath of sorts with the words "oriental" and another word beneath it that I can't seem to make out. Appears to be a cursive-written capitol "J" maybe?
The third photo shows the toureen (sans lid) on the right and on the left is a shallow plate with nearly identical color and decorative style. However, the last photo shows the mark on this plate as more of an English crown style. The marks on both pieces also contain small numbers in red.....the toureen reads "7903? (or 1903....but up close it sure looks like a 7) and the plate reads 3/1090 I believe.
I am pretty sure both items are circa. early to mid 1800s...any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
