China mark query - S.P.P. underneath a crown between 2 feathered wings

China mark query - S.P.P. underneath a crown between 2 feathered wings:- I have a bone china tea set with the inscription S.P.P. underneath a crown between 2 feathered wings. As far as I'm aware, it was brought back from the far east by my late grandmother. Looking to see how much the whole set would be worth.

Thanks for your interesting query.

I can see you borrowed the pics from this page:- SPP Japanese Marks at Gotheborg.

Gothegorg are the best of breed on oriental marks, so I can't add the the knowledge base on this one. They say the SPP mark "seems to date to the period immediately after the second WW, i.e. late 1940's-early 1950's".

Yes I borrowed that pic, as I was going to add that one as it has a good pic of the stamp, and the set i own but I couldnt upload the 2 photos. Yeah I saw that it was dated to around that time.

The only thing I can add is the wares must have been the typical 'Occupied Japan' type wares made specifically for export. These type of wares always had very European looking labels rather than Japanses characters.

What they did was to look at the typical pottery marks of the European makers and come up with an 'homage'.

For example, there are similar type of circular laurel & crown style marks by the following companies:-

Kunst Kronach, Bavaria

Meakins, Tunstall

Crownford, Burslem

Edwin Bennett Pottery Co, Baltimore (E B P Co)

Duchess China (A T Finney & Sons), Longton

A G Harley Jones (H J), Fenton

Geo Borgfeldt (Coronet), New York

Maling Pottery (Coronet and Willowware), Newcalstle-upon-Tyne

Crown Staffordshire, Fenton

Von Schierholz's Porcelain, Thuringia

W T Copeland & Sons (Copeland & Garrett), Stoke

etc etc

SPP Japanese Mark

Dear Patricia,

A litle more information...

The mark on your china was used by a Japanese company after WW II from the 1940's to 1950's. Not a lot is know about the company but, as you saw there is some basic information on gotheborg.org/japmarks as explained above.

Yours,

Blake

Dragon Saucers SPP
by: Chris

I have just acquired 5 saucers with gold and red hand painted enamel dragon designs and the same china mark - a crown topped with a maltese cross, two wings and SPP. I can't find any other information about them either.

Same!

Chris, sounds like you have exactly the same set as me. Really trying to find out some more info. All I know is that my great grandfather bought these in an auction shortly after WW2. Very much doubt I would sell them, but would love to get an idea of price!
