Clover and Crown Pottery Mark Query - White Eagle with Gold Beak and Talons

Clover and Crown Pottery Mark Query - White Eagle with Gold Beak and Talons:- I have a beautiful figurine of an eagle. The bird is solid white with only a gold beak and is in a high gloss glaze. The maker's mark is a clover with a crown. I can not find this mark anywhere. Do you have any idea who the maker could be? I have attached pictures of the bird.


Thanks in advance for any help you can give me on this one.

Regards

Belinda

Hi Belinda

Thanks for photo of your beautiful white eagle figure with clover mark.

You didn't show us the mark, unfortunately. Now, this is where submitters must try to upload two merged pics if they want to get the best out of this public forum.

The clover mark is quite common, but I have not seen one specifically including a crown.

Makers who use a 3 leaf clover pottery mark are:-

    Gotthelf Greiner of Limbach, Thuringia, Germany

    Gossbreitenbach of Thuringia, Germany

    Llmenau of Thuringia, Germany

    Annaburg Earthenware Factory of Annaburg, Prussia.

    Limbach Porcelain Factory of Limbach, Thuringia, Germany

    Brux Porcelain Factory of Brux, Bohemia (now Czech...)

    A Bourne Claverdon of London, England.

    Arklow Pottery Ltd of Arklow, Co Wicklow, Ire


Those factories using a four leaf clover design include:-

    Ley & Weidermann of Haldensleben, Prussia

    Merkelsgrun Porcelain of Merkelsgrun, Bohemia

    Mayer China of Beaver Falls, PA, USA

    Chelsea Keramic Art Works of Chelsea, MA, USA

    Sebastian Schmidt / Eberhard Suhr, Schmiedefeld & Rudolstadt of Thuringia, Germany

    Rose Valley Pottery of PA, USA

    John Maddock & Sons, Trenton NJ, USA

    Cook Pottery Co, Trenton, NJ, USA

    Wade (Ultser) Ltd of Portadown, N Ireland

    Robert Stewart Ceramics of Paisley, Scotland

    Karlsbader of Merkelsgrun, Bohemia

So you can see why a photo including the mark is desirable! It may help to narrow it down somewhat.

From the list above it seems likely your white eagle figurine sculpture is Germanic European (Thuringia or Bohemia region). The US firms would perhaps less likely to incorporate a crown into their devices.

Feel free to await answers from knowledgeable others who may come across your submission in this thread, but if you would like an experts eye, go to my page here ....

I Have a Goose with Gold Beak and Feet
by: Gina

I just bought a goose figurine today, October 27, 2011, from a thrift store. My goose has a sticker on it with the name Limbach on it. It has been at this store for a few weeks, but is in poor condition, ie. the gold has been worn off. Someone must have handled it a lot. I found out from the internet that it was made at the Limbach porcelain factory in Germany, Thuringia I believe. They primarily manufactured porcelain doll's heads.
