Marked with the iron red PCG Mark for Petit Carousel Guy a short lived porcelain decorator and retailer in Paris France during the late 1700s
"Paris porcelain" is the very white porcelain made in France from about 1770 to 1870. The name "Vieux Paris" or "Old Paris" for these wares was first used by collectors in the late 19th century. In the late 1700s, the Sevres factory near Paris was established as France's national factory with "royal privilege." Its porcelains were top-quality, with original shapes and lavish decorations. Other makers near Paris soon began making similar porcelain pieces. Before long, more than 35 small factories were selling what is now called Paris porcelain. Almost all of their wares were unmarked. The factories quickly updated their patterns to keep up with the latest fashions
