Pottery Mark Photo for Ludwigsburg Crown with 'L' Covered Dish and Saucer?
by Sharon Sullivan
Is This a Ludwigsburg Crown with 'L' Pottery Mark Imitator Covered Dish and Saucer?:- My husband and I received this hand painted (?) covered dish and saucer from his parents. We are fairly certain his parents did not purchase this lovely little thing. His folks were very frugal and not ones much for bric-a-brac. As his mother was an orphan, we assume it was his paternal grandmothers'. His father grew up in Maryland, so that may be where the dish was originally bought.

Thanks for your interesting query, I really appreciate the time and trouble you took to contact the site and share and joining the ezine list (twice!). You did the right thing by emailing me as your submission may have been deleted by the admin team as you forgot to put your email address in the submission form.

The mark is a 'homage' to Ludwigsburg by one of the 'mark-imitators' see previous post on Ludwigsburg and mark imitators,
rather than the real thing?
My job is to point you in the right direction, and my opinion is this mark is that of a Japanese importing firm called Arnart, based in New York. There is plenty written about Arnart on this website, so just take time to use one of the search boxes at the top of most main pages (eg homepage etc) and read up on the information given.
Do the genuine Luswigsburg wares have printed numbers under the porcelain mark crown & L? I know Anart do - and in exactly the same font and size.
If you want an insurance valuation or are thinking of maybe selling your stuff at sometime in the future and want to get the best possible price, I recommend you get an expert report – it particularly helps on ebay where people are not able to inspect the items, and therefore have to take your word for it.
