Pottery Mark Query - DRESDEN MARK - Two cursive letters intwined which could be anything:- These marks are photos of the bottom of a 5 piece desk set. They have been in the family for years and years..
I believe the story is my father bought them in Europe during WWII.

There are many different makers who mark their wares with 'Dresden'. I am sure this is one of the better catalogued ones, but I can't recall which one at the moment. This mark is difficult to look up at the moment because it is hard to see what letters they are.
I am sure a knowledgeable visitor will pop up with the answer soon.

I can see how the family would be grateful for an identification as these items must be close to the family heart and are currently sadly anonymous.
