The brown anchor mark was used in the gold anchor period on pieces which have no gilding. The decoration of this plate is not of high quality and suggests a date at the transition to the gold anchor period. An advertisement of September 1759 is evidence that the factory felt itself urgently in need of talented painters at that time.
