Crown Over "K" Pottery Mark Query
(Cape Coral, Fl)
Crown Over "K" Pottery Mark Query:- Crown Over "K" Pottery Mark Query:- We just purchased our first home, the homeowners left a wonderful, unique chandelier with matching candlestick holders. She was an older German lady. I have not found a mark on the chandelier but the detail is similar to the candlestick holders. Any clue what this mark is-and maybe if the chandelier is related? I am curious to know. Thank you, Autumn
I could only attach 1 photo, but I have some of the chandelier if interested?

Thanks for your interesting story about your wonderful 'find'. It would be great to see the style of sculpting work on this piece as this tells all about the era it was made and the standard of the artwork. Visitors will get more from me the more photos they send in - one new online submission form for each photo.
The photo of the wares is even more important in this case because the mark is not an obvious one i.e. it is not a well documented German Crown mark from a famous or notable maker as shown in my reference books.
I subsequently found the entry for an obscure East German Company called Rudolf Kämmer of Volkstedt, Thuringia. They used this pottery mark between 1961 and 1972. Rudolf Kämmer were founded in 1953 and continue into modern times.
I also checked using the searching resources as outlined in my China Replacement
page with no luck so far.
