The China Chat Pottery Markings
Archive for Germany & Bohemia

Our German & Bohemian pottery markings archive shows that Germanic porcelain marks are often less easy to identify than English marks because at the height of the demand for fine china towards the end of the 19th century, the German makers were trying to sell into the huge English speaking markets, but without necessarily making it obvious their items were of German origin.



German Porcelain in Disguise

German porcelain was of high quality and also cheaper than English china. So much so that in 1887 in the UK and 1890 in the US, laws were passed making it necessary to declare country of origin.

The snag was, the threat of war was constantly bubbling and there was such emnity between the Germanic peoples and the English speaking peoples at that time, that the English speaking countries tended to want to avoid German porcelain if possible.

Patriotism was the order of the day ( (remember, by 1914, the world was at war).  But in practice, the country of origin law turned out to be in the favour of the German makers sipmly because their produce was generally of such high quality and relatively low comparable prices.

Why the German Pottery Markings Archive Shows Many English Looking Marks

So, in other words, if people recognised the fine china as obviously German, they might be less inclined to by it, or so the theory went. German export marks were therefore became less specific, than their equivalent English marks, and therefore more tricky to identify.

So therefore English and American retailers and distributers would source their china from Germany but re-label the wares with more English looking marks.

Such a case in point was the British retailer of the late 19th century, early 20th century called Max Emanuel & Co.  Using the factory of Mitterteich in Bavaria they developed a pottery mark using an English long-bow and arrows with a decidedly English looking archery helmet and an archer's cup.  All very British in outlook and motif.

The Mystery English Archer's Helmet Turned Out to be German!

There were no words used on the mark at all, so as to identify the wares as German made.  Later, new laws would force them to add the words 'foreign' or 'Germany' to their new pottery markings.

How to we know this?

Because for several years on our China Chat pottery markings archive, we were bamboozled by this strange but rather beautifully designed mark.

Eventually, someone came along who knew the answer, took the time to post a comment on the thread and now, because we make sure we can get found by Google search, this mark is now common knowledge for everyone.

If you take into account the big picture explained above, an obscure mark on finer porcelains can therefore often indicate a German porcelain mark (most often seen are late 19th century items - the height of production). 

Another area of interest to many visitors is the marks on Dresden wares.

Dresden/Meissen - What's the distinction?

Dresden wares are distinct from Meissen wares in that Meissen is a company (the very same that was the first to discover how to make true Chinese porcelain in 1710).

Whereas, Dresden is the name for a group of decorating studios working in the retail sector in the centre of the city of Dresden.  The Dresden decorators existed because of the nearby great factory of Meissen, but were not one and the same.  Heck, in many cases, they didn't even buy their whiteware from Meissen, but sourced from other much cheaper factories from further afield.

There were hundreds of small Dresden decorators, but today we can recognise only a few of the marks.  The China Chat pottery markings archive for Germany & Bohemia has several different threads discussing this topic, so go ahead and use the search function or browse the titles below to find them.
