Pottery Mark Query - Cross Swords with letters R & P plus words: Germany and Dresden:- Hello, The enclosed porcelain figure of a woman holding a flower? in her hand with a lace dress (bottom and top).


The mark on the bottom is a cross swords with what seems to be the letters P and R as the base of each sword. In addition the words Germany and Dresden are below the swords.

This figure is in my family for many years.

Thanks,

The forum Help Elf says:-

The maker is Martha Budich of Dresden. These were made in post war Dresden in the GDR within the communist block under Soviet rule. The letters are not R & P but M & B.

After looking carefuly at the mark I don't think the letters are M & B.
I also looked at the Martha Budich site mentioned and the letters at the base of the swords are different.

I am still looking for the clues about the maker according to the marks.

Thanks,

YK

The mark is identical to Budich in every way apart from the letters. The work is identical. This is Buddich studio to my eyes - maybe with a slight variation on their standard mark for marketing purposes - i.e. for a distributor or retailer or export channel. The date and region remain the same.

My figurine has what looks like to me, the identical mark, but it says "Germany" under that. Any thoughts? Thank you.

not really Dresden
by: Karl

Dear Help Elf,

I'm sorry, but this pieces where never made in Dresden. Not in pre war nor in post war. This porcelain has nothing to do with any kind of Dresden porcelain at all. All that producers like Pech, Budich, Rittirsch and so on printed the word Dresden under their items for only one reason. They knew that they can make a good bargain if they produce a Dresden-series of their own.
After the war many Thuringian porcelain-workers fled from their homes because of the communism into the free zone of Germany. So there was no lack of know-how in the Bavarian woods. :-)
Call this pieces Dresden porcelain in a general meaning is incorrect in two ways. Because a) they are made in Bavaria and b) in the beginning they are made by workers from Thuringia.

Greetings from Dresden!
Karl
