    What a lovely plate! I can't tell from the pictures, but is it handpainted or transfered? I believe it probably dates late 19th-early 20th century, before WWII certainly. To the best of my knowledge, this mark is for PK Silesia Germany. P. K. stands for Porzellanfabrik Koenigszelt. Porzellanfabrik is German for “porcelain factory.” Koenigszelt is the town near the factory’s location, in Silesia in northeastern Germany. They have a long (and to me, rather complicated) history you can read about here, if you care to:

    It looks like an RS Germany decoration and if I am not mistaken there is a relationship between these firms.

    WHAT COMPANY IS RS GERMANY. I APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENT

    The RS is for Reinhold Schlegelmilch. I'm not sure if this will help or just confuse you more, but the following is from the site I referred to in my earlier post about this plate:
    "What really confused collectors and dealers for quite some time is the fact that there were so many 'Schlegelmilch' factories. Although the different firm owners had the same surname, they represented the production efforts of two distinctly UN-related families. These facts have been known since 1984, the year that Bernd Hartwich published his results after intensive research on the matter. But this information was not available in America until the English translation was published in the U.S.A. in 1993. The extensive historical research by Ron Capers shows there was no blood relationship between Leonard and Reinhold. The facts are actually quite simple. The first facility was owned by Reinhold and the other facility was owned by Leonard, who had named his firm after his father, Erdmann. These two operations were in direct competition with each other and the factory owned by Reinhold (Reinhold Schlegelmilch = 'R.S.', 'R.S. Prussia') was subsequently run with his two sons, Ehrhard and Arnold. The latter took over an existing porcelain factory in Tillowitz in 1894 and continued to run it as part of the Reinhold Schlegelmilch enterprise until he died in 1934. The firm owned by Leonard was later on led by Oscar, Julius Martin, and Carl. Carl opened his own factory in 1882 and Oscar started his own factory in Langenwiesen during 1892. Julius Martin eventually took over the ownership of the Erdmann facility in 1899 after Leonard died."
