Pottery Mark Query - Austria: single eagle above shield:- I recently received this set of Austrian pottery (from my parents) of which I can find nothing on the internet with this Mark to give me an idea of who is the manufacturer is, production date, and what the background is. My fathers parents came are from Norway back in approximately 1930, of which I understand is from this is from his family.


Thanks to anyone who can help me get some more information or direction as to where I can go to get some history of the manufacture.

Pottery Mark Query - Austria: single eagle above shield

Hi Brian

Nice wares and nice set of photos.

This mark is that of a relatively obscure factory called Adolf Persch Porcelain Factory, Hajinste, Czech Republic (formerly known as Hegewald, Bohemia, Austria)

Adolf Persch founded this factory in Hajinste c.1902. It survived to c.1937. Persch and his son Robert had purchased a factory called "Austria", originally named 'Winter, Lochschmidt & Co' of Loket, Czech Republic founded 1890 (formerly Elbogen, Bohemia, Austria). Sold by owner Carl Speck to his brother-in-law Adolf Persch in 1901. There are links with Benjamin F Hunt & Son, Julius Dietl Porcelain Factory.

Your mark was used for the duration of the factory along with a couple of other different marks, one of which said "AP Austria" with a crown, and the other was a shield with the word "Austria" written above and a diagonal banner with the word "Bristol" written inside the banner. Why 'Bristol' is unknown to me.
