Image 0607-06b... also found on an item by Rudolstadt Pottery L. Straus which normally only used their 'RW' mark on own items.
Image 0607-04aCrossed somethings above 'GERMANY' (and often 'DRESDEN'). Claimed to be Pech (Kronach, Bavaria) but this mark does not match.

Image 1108-02'ART CERAMIC' above a central 'B' flanked by the initials 'D M', all above 'GERMANY'.

Image 1111-11b... which can also be found with 'GERMANY'.
Image 0906-01Crown, crossed swords and a beehive ⇒cover-up. Claims of 'redecorated JKW' are nonsense.

Image 1009-10'CAPO DI MONTE' (a perfume) sticker on a 'GERMANY'-marked bottle. Who used this one?
Image 0503-18Initials 'C.A.W.' above 'GERMANY' in a triangle.
Image 1207-13Very simple mark: 'MADE IN GERMANY' above 'FOR C.B. No.2' - who produced these items and who or what is 'C.B.'?

Image 1111-12Circle around 'D & B' above 'GERMANY'. Items often claimed to be Dümler & Breiden, but they never made porcelain.

Image 0504-02'DORIA' over 'W. GERMANY'.
Image 0512-08'F' in a stylized coffee pot over 'MADE IN GERMANY'.
Image 0705-08'FRANKEN-KUNST' above 'GERMANY' (Franken is the northern part of Bavaria).

Image 0906-49Crowned 'G S C' above 'DRESDEN', with single 'GERMANY' addition on the left hand side.
Image 1009-13aSimple 'G' above a symbol of sorts (open scissors?) and a 'V'. Obviously not Unger, Schneider & Co. (Gräfenthal, Thuringia).
Image 1009-13bAnother example of the previous mark which allows to easily recognize the 'V'.
Image 0512-06Simply a capital 'H' in a circle above 'MADE IN GERMANY'.
Image 1104-12Crown above shield with a single capital 'H' above 'GERMANY'.

Image 0906-41b'KRÜGER' and 'ECHT COBALT' above 'MADE IN GERMANY'. Sometimes found without 'GERMANY' additon.
Image 0707-06Simple 'L & R' above 'GERMANY' in a circle.
Image 1009-16aCrowned 'L R' constantly claimed to be Leube (Reichmannsdorf, Thuringia). But according to the reference books I own ...
Image 1009-16b... this mark is *not* Leube. Can anybody offer *proof* or at least quote a source?
Image 1207-03Obviously 'MARMOT-CHINA', but which German manufacturer produced these items?
Image 1309-09Crowned 'N Co.' surrounded by 'MADE IN WESTERN GERMANY', all above 'DRESDEN'.

Image 0906-04bEncircled initials 'O G' above 'GERMANY', here in red.
Image 1009-08aCrowned 'P.-M.B.' above 'DEC. DRESDEN'. The 'P.-M.' could have stood for 'Porzellan-Manufaktur'.

Image 1309-10'HANDMALEREI' above a crowned 'R' and 'GERMANY'.

Image 1207-14'ROG MAR' makes no sense, 'K.G.' could be the business form. 'PVB' and 'MARKTREDWITZ, GERMANY' is simple enough. Still, no leads.
Image 1111-15ROYAL BLUE' above 'GERMANY', 'MEDALLION' appears to be the series name. Found on a series of (repro?) toothpic holders.

(Picture by Brian M. Jensen)
Image 1009-18Crossed 'swords' joined by a 'W' above 'GERMANY'. Similar to a 180 degrees turned Mitterteich mark, perhaps G. Wolf (Küps, Bavaria)?
Image 1009-17aStylized 'W' above 'C-I-O'. The item was obviously ...
Image 1009-17b... produced betweeen 1946 and 1949. But who used this mark?
