Pottery Mark Query - Sun burst rays with possible RC/RG/EC/EG? two letters printed on top of each other

Pottery Mark Query - Sun burst rays with possible RC/RG/EC/EG? two letters printed on top of each other:- I have a little pot, with what looks like a tern and a seagull on it - taupe/grey colour, flying over sea.


Mark is a circle split in two with a straight horizon line (no waves) but a sun coming from the horizon line, and then another layer of rays. Bottom half of circle (below horizon) are some initials...Possible RC/RG/EC/EG? the two letters are printed on top of each other, which is why i can't quite tell. Mark is crisp and printed in a blacky/brown colour. Vase is not Royal Copenhagen/ B&G as far as i can tell.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a million.

an obscure mark
by: Robyn

My mother has a lovely set- serving bowl with matching berry bowls. I can not find any info on the mark in the back. It is a very faint name- EB BENEDIKT- with a small heart, open at the top. I have searched everywhere. Does anyone recognize this mark?

Vase Identification
by: Blake

Dear Laura,
Your vase was made by Heubach Bros. of Lichte, Thuringia, Germany. The mark dates the vase as having been made from 1892 onward. When searching for the vase you may want to use the name Gebruder Heubach; Gebruder being the German for Brothers. The company is famous for making porcelain doll heads, dolls & figurines but they also made some very high quality art pottery vases. Try searching eBay using the term Heubach Vase. There are currently a couple of ongoing auctions for vases with the same decoration as yours.

Yours, Blake

Porcelain Set Identification
by: Blake

Dear Robyn,
Your mother's set was made by Gebrüder Benedikt or Benedikt Brothers Porcelain Factory of Dvory, Czech Republic formerly known as Meierhofen, Bohemia, Austria. The E.B. part of the mark really helps to narrow down the date the set was made. In 1918 the Eberhardt & Co factory merged with Gebrüder Benedikt Porcelain and the E from the Eberhardt along with a B for Benedikt was added to the mark. In 1925 the company became known as United Porcelain Factory Meierhofen so your set should date from 1918 to 1925.

I hope this helps.

Yours, Blake

Blake,
Thank you so much! My mother has several items that she got from my grandmothers, and it has been a bit of fun identifying them. You have helped so much!

Found my vase at last
by: Cathy

I've been searching for ages to find the pottery mark with the sun. My vase has a white eagle type bird sitting on a cliff and looks similar to Royal Copenahgen colours. So pleased to have found this site.

Thanks

NOT CORRECT
by: Anonymous

THIS MARK IS FOR "GEBRUEDER HEUBACH, WHICH WAS VERY FAMOUS FOR GERMAN PORCELAIN HEAD DOLLS. THE COMPANY OPENED IN 1820, NOT SURE WHEN IT CLOSED.
THIS IS DEFINITELY THE MARK THE HEUBACH FACTORY.

Sun with Rays Mark letters HG
by: KT

I recently bought an ink blotter with almost the exact mark, and the lettering turns out to be GH for Gruber Heubach/Heubach Bros. Company of Lichten, Germany. Starting in a about 1882 the company made household items up through the turn of the century, when they became very well known for their bisque dolls, and doll heads. Your vase, I am most certain was made by them probably in the late 1880s-1890's period. It is a very nice quality piece!
