IMPORTANT offerDING AND PAYMENT INFORMATION: IF YOU PLAN TO offer ON THIS ITEM AND ARE THE HIGH buyer I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THAT YOU DO NOT PAY ME UNTIL YOU RECEIVE MY INVOICE NOT THE INVOICE THAT IS GENERATED IMMEDIATELY AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE SALE BY . now has rules that all sellers MUST ship items for which they have been paid within one business day without exception. Those who follow my sales and have bought from me over the years know that I have always had a policy of shipping within 24 hours of a sale (see my response), however, there are times when I am out of town unexpectedly for a house call, an sale or an estate call and it simply is not possible to get to the post office in time. Also, if you find that there is more than one item you are interested in offerding on over a given time period and would like to take advantage of combined shipping, please again, DO NOT pay me until the last of those items you're watching has finished. I will then send you an invoice with an adjusted shipping fee which saves on postage.. I never charge a "handling fee". I would rather wait a few days on a payment and extend you the advantage of lower shipping fees than to be paid immediately - not ship - and then be scored negatively by for not shipping soon enough.
Offered in this sale is a group of thirteen (13) hand painted German porcelain plates that were made in Germany in the late 1800s. All of the pieces are marked on the back with a crown and crossed sword or trident mark, however, I am not sure which studio used this mark. Each plate is decorated with alternating panels of flowers and a scene of young couples. Four of the plates have a turquoise background, four have a pink background and five have a yellow background. All of the courting scenes are different on each of the plates. No two are alike. They measure 8 1/2" in diameter. Aside from some minor rubbing to the background color on a few of the plates the condition of all of them is excellent. There are no chips, cracks, flakes, hairlines or restoration on any of them. This pattern was quite popular in the late 1800s and is said to have been inspired by the works of Watteau. Many of the Dresden porcelain and even Austrian studios were painting similar works. If you are assembling a table service you can mix and match. These also are nice to display on a wall or in a breakfront. Please feel free to email with any questions. I always guarantee everything that I sell to be as described. This group is being sold WITHOUT A RESERVE as long as there is an opening offer. High buyer to pay $12.00 shipping/ including insurance - inside the United States.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: I RECEIVED A MESSAGE FROM SOMEONE TO TELL ME THAT THEY FOUND A REFERENCE TO THIS MARK IN A BOOK TITLED "Marks on German, Bohemian and Austrian Porcelain: 1710 to the Present" WHERE THE AUTHOR ATTRIBUTES THE MARK TO A FACTORY IN ALTSHAUSEN GERMANY (five hours south of Dresden) C1950. THERE IS NO RECORD OF THE "REPORTED" ALSTHAUSEN PORCELAIN FACTORY TO BE FOUND ANYWHERE ON LINE NOR COULD I FIND ANY OTHER REFERENCE TO THIS MARK ON LINE OR IN ANY REFERENCE BOOK. I FIND IT ODD THAT IF THE MARK WAS INDEED CIRCA 1950 THAT THE WORD GERMANY WOULD NOT APPEAR ANYWHERE ON THE BACK. ALSO, AS WE ALL KNOW, NOT ALL REFERENCE BOOKS ARE FLAWLESS. I MENTION THIS JUST FOR THE RECORD. UNTIL OR UNLESS I HAVE ANOTHER PIECE OF SUPPORTING EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY I STICK WITH MY FEELING THAT THESE ARE EARLIER. IN ANY CASE, THERE IS NO QUESTION THEY ARE VINTAGE GERMAN AND ARE DECORATED WITH A PATTERN PRODUCED IN MASS IN THE LATE 1800S AND EARLY 1900S.
