Bird Plates Germany

Two (2) vintage gold trimmed, vibrantly colored turquoise bordered porcelain charger / cabinet plates are decorated with gold stenciling and richly detailed transfers of quails and pheasants in their native setting. They would be stunning displayed in a cabinet or hung on the wall with a plate hanger. Circa 1945-50.

An interesting note is that these plates are one of many similar types of well made and decorated plates that were actually produced in Japan and distributed in the U.S. as reproductions.

The plate is back marked with, "S, T, W" over Bavaria Germany in a shield style mark. A blue beehive mark was also stamped beside the green shield to mimic the hand painted mark of the Imperial and Royal Porcelain Manufactory, Vienna, commonly referred to as Royal Vienna. But, despite the 'beehive' in blue, the plate was not produced by Royal Vienna. The mark is only intended to give that immediate impression, to help suggest the plate is old.

If you look very carefully at the decal label that has been slightly scratched, you will see portions of another mark underneath and this is likely to be the name, "Japan".
