HISTORY. At Este, between Padova and Ferrara, a soft paste porcelain factory was established in 1780 which made both tableware and figures in biscuit. Little is known about it, but the few pieces that can be traced to Este display merit. The Este mark may be the word "Este" accompanied by a date or may be of the form shewn in the cut. In the latter part of the eighteenth century a small quantity of soft paste porcelain was made at Treviso, consisting mostly of tableware. The pieces are marked "Treviso" with G.A.F.F., or F.F., in addition.
