My MIL was given this set by her MIL when she was young. It's in pristine shape. I don't even know where to begin trying to find out about it for her. I forgot to get a shot of the signature marking.

Can anyone ID this mark? I have a set of cups, saucers and cream soup bowls that I found in a thrift store. Beautiful thin, translucent china - which I'll try to get a pic of later - but no clue who made it. Any ideas?

Alma, here's a link you might find helpful ~ there's a whole bunch of markings for Germany.

Smiley, there wasn't a single mark in all 19 pages identical to the one I have! However, you spurred me to a new search and I found it! I had thought all this time that the maker might be Fraureth. Not so; it's Furstenberg. Here's the mark in the very lowest right hand corner.
http://www.fuerstenberg-porzellan.com/fbg-en/produkte/infos/... Now, because it says W. Germany, I know it was made sometime between 1950 and 1990 so it's no antique. I still don't know what the number "6" means. Or what the pattern is. It's fun to search and I'd probably buy more of these dishes if I found them. Here's a link with some interesting info about how marks came to be. http://www.porcelainmarksandmore.com/0pages/notes.php

Alma, I looked through about 6 pages then thought about putting the link in. It got me looking at the backs & bottoms of some of my own stuff!

Julie, I kept searching after the last post and found this pattern, Furstin. http://www.fuerstenberg-porzellan.com/fbg-en/produkte/geschi... My cups have the same shape, same pedestal and curve to the handles, but they don't have the gold ring trim. I may have to send them a photo and ask them to solve the mystery for me. It is fun trying to chase down info. Let's see some of yours!
