Antique Porcelain China Plates

As a general rule of thumb it was thought that around 1890 until about 1920 all Chinese items that were imported into the US were required to be marked with the word "CHINA" as the country of origin (U.S. Stamp Act of 1894).

Later is was found to be not entirely true. Some were marked and some were not. It is also uncertain that the practice of marking porcelain with the word CHINA actually ended in 1920.

From 1919 the word "CHINA" should have been replaced by the phrase "Made in China" but despite this the single word "CHINA" occurred on pieces made well in to the 1960's and 1970's.
