    WOW, how did I miss THIS!? What a beautiful plate! I have never seen that peacock mark with what looks Arabic characters (at least to my untrained eye) before. I'll be anxious to see what you find out about this!

    You will find it in Morocco. Almost everyone in Morocco has one of this plate. Very popular but expensive too.

    The originals are expensive but the copies are very cheap.

    Morocco, huh?? May I ask how you can tell the original from the copies? The mark isn't at all familiar to me and I'd like to know more about it! :-)

    Dear madam,

    What you have there is a Chinese made peacock porcelain plate. Produced in China, although there are forgeries on the market.
    If it's an original and not a fake, is to be measured on the sound it makes when you lay it down on one hand (under - in the middle) and strike it with your index finger on the edge of it, where it is the thinnest. The sound it should produce is a very high and clean beautiful long lasting 'piiiiiiiiiiiinnnnng'.

    My guess would be the following

    (Vintage) Blue Glaze Peacock Porcelain Plate
    Color: blue glaze
    Dimensions: 12" roundness plate
    Material: ordinary china / porcelain

    If you want info specifically about these ceramics, then I suggest you contact t
    The following Chinese wholesale company brings them on the market, they can
    tell you more:

    The back of the plate says in Arabic 'A taws al hor', two words, which mean as much as 'Original Peacock'.
    It's clear the Chinese producers have a long time ago discovered that Arabs are more fond of their peacock plate than their own people. Cause I don't see any Chinese characters on the back and the Arab writing is done by hand quit quickly as if by a schoolboy. For this sort of luxury products, letters should have been written down in beautiful Arabic letter types and not in just someone's handwriting.
