Antique bone china query PLANT Tuscan China:- Hi I have recently aquired 2 peices of Tuscan Plant china, a small jug and a square plate. Whith a cream background the corners of the plate are scolloped with gold guilt scrolls and gold edging. There are yellow pink blue a little bit of red flowers, and green leaves with grey on the edges.
Across the bottom right hand corner there is a large black slash with a scallop to one side, and there is very fine gold scrolling all over the black. On the inside of the black slash there are two blue/green stripes one longer than the other.The jug has the same pattern.
It is only a small dainty creamer. I can't seem to find any information on this design.
I would be very grateful if you could help me. The design appears to be hand painted.
Thank you so much. Hoping to hear from you soon.
Kerry from Australia.

Thanks for sharing your submission. It would have been great to see the actual item and the mark too.
Let's hope someone else comes across this listing who knows a bit more than me about patterns, although I have put a page together designed to help visitors research their patterns which talks about being sure to check out Replacements.com - they have visuals on many Tuscan patterns (use the vertical blue bar left of screen).
In your case, hand painting unlikely - look at with magnifying glass to see if it has dots or other tell-tale signs.
Each pattern will be slightly different if hand painted. Hand painted is valuable (especially from Tuscan (Susie Cooper's plant). More info on pattern research here: www.figurines-sculpture.com/china-patterns.html
