Mettlach - Villeroy and Boch (V&B) History and Pottery Marks Query





Mettlach - Villeroy and Boch (V&B) History and Pottery Marks Query:- Hello again Peter, I want to thank you again for the last detailed response from you on the subject of Rosenthal figurines - it was very helpful. I have one more piece that I am researching and you can get a picture and info by clicking on the attached address here:

http://www.prices4antiques.com/pottery-porcelain/mettlach/Mettlach-Charger--1418-Flora-Birds-Butterflies-Circular-19-inch-D9778055.htm

This is also from my father by way of post war Germany - we think it is a Villeroy and Boch plate but found it online under Mettlach Charger.

Anything you can tell me will be greatly appreciated. We also have a collection of about 120 pre-war Hummels - some unpainted. I am still trying to find the other 2 Nubian Rosenthal figurines (I have 2 and they
were a set of 4)- when I do I can send you pictures if you have any interest - I assume you have better things to do.

Thanks again,

Philip.

Hi Philip.

Thanks for another interesting query. I always like queries that stretch my own knowledge to a new point and also give visitors great information. This is one such great query for that reason. I have also always had a great fondness for Villeroy & Boch (V&B) wares, even before I was in the industry. There is something very special about this company.






On the subject of your previous query, please do go ahead and forward the photos and report what more you have found out about the Nubian Figurines by Rosenthal, I would be very interested to hear what you have learned.

Mettlach Pottery / Porcelain

Mettlach is a name synonymous with quality and value. Mettlach (named after the village) is one of the many factories of Villeroy & Boch (V&B). Located on the Saar River in Western Germany, very close to France and Luxembourg the Mettlach Pottery factory is on the grounds of a former Benedictine Abbey dating to the 10th century (see my A - Z China manufacturers guide).

Mettlach has produced dinnerware, ash trays, plaques, pitchers, jars, vases, and beer steins amongst other various wares.

The above photos give an idea of the most common 'Mettlach' V & B pottery marks. There are some other different Mettlach Villeroy & Boch (V&B) pottery marks, but I understand they are more rare than the above shown (I don't know this for sure, but this is what I was told).

Hope this information helps Philip. I look forward to hearing from you again.

Best regards,
