Thanks all for your suggestions, and your kind words Sue. I will have a look around on the net later.
Probably far to ambitious to think it could be linen smoother :)

Bohemia, Czechoslovakia, Czech Republic, Austria / Three Stolzle Pieces.

Though not in the catalogue I believe these three pieces are Stolzle. The plate similar to the 18437 on P.19, and the dish 18475 P.6.

You tie a linen cloth around it, soak it in ink and use it to ink copper etching/ engraving plates under pressure. There should be different sizes in a set and different curvatures to allow you to press ink into the shallower engraved parts.
Or it could be a blotter.

I wasn't brave enough to say that, because I couldn't see any wear around the bottom of the glaze.

It is very black and very shiney. And we all make mistakes. It's only bad when we don't find out or correct them, Tim. ;D

This isn't in the catalogue but has a combination of the panel pattern on the 18872 pedestal bowl on P.17 and the ball pattern on the dishes on the last page.
