  1. Looking at your set again, I think it's actually a tea set. I have posted a picture of a chocolate pot and some matching pieces. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/139725-cottage-scene-pieces
  2. This mold pattern first appeared in trade catalogues in 1910, and was discontinued around 1915. The outbreak of the First World War in 1914 made importing goods from Germany very difficult (and unpop...
  3. Your little vase was imported by the C.E. Wheelock company. See this page for some background on that firm. They were out of business by 1922. http://www.foxauctionsonline.com/Wheelock%20China%20S...
  4. http://www.liveauctioneers.com/catalog/39498_antique-auction/page1 Lot 3 is an original teapot in the stippled floral mold.
  5. This tea set is a reproduction of an RS Prussia set. It is a fairly accurate copy of the molded shapes of the "stippled floral, mold 23" style, but the décor gives it away as a fake. They can make ...
  6. http://www.havilandonline.com/backmark.htm A good place to start your search. Look under Charles Field Haviland (CFH)
  7. Another nice piece of RS Prussia. Collectors refer to this mold as the "Swag and Tassel" mold. It dates to the 1905-1910 period. The largest dishes of this shape (sometimes up to 14 inches in lengt...
  8. Your cups are nice examples of RS Prussia ware. Even with falling prices for collectable porcelain, they could still be worth several hundred dollars per set. I would drink very carefully.
  9. Here is a link to an eBay listing for the original RS Prussia bowl that this modern piece attempts to copy. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beautiful-Saxe-Altenburg-R-S-Prussia-Hidden-Image-Bowl-/27159774414...
  10. The blue birds (or swallows) are always transfers. The background was hand painted by the decorator to blend with the transfer. There is no fully hand painted RS porcelain except for the pre 1894 e...
  11. Your invalid feeder was made by the Reinhold Schlegelmilch porcelain Company (RS Prussia to collectors) in the mid 1890's. The mold is commonly called the overlapping shell mold. It was used for all...
  12. You have an RS Germany shaving mug. A bar of shaving soap sat in the perforated section, and excess water drained through the three holes. The lower section held the hot water used to rinse the shav...
  13. How large are the pieces in this set? To me they appear to be part of a pitcher and basin wash set from the days before indoor plumbing. The set would also include the night potty that sat under the ...
  14. I have just posted a cake plate with the same rose transfer to show another way to verify that an unmarked piece is a genuine antique piece.
  15. Your tray is the real thing. None of the modern forgeries can match the light feel of the old porcelain, or the soft yet detailed transfers.
  16. I think the pattern suggests that this is a nut set, rather than salts.
  17. Wow. A beautiful display! I particularly love the Autumn maiden pot.
  18. In the 1994 RS Prussia collectors book by Gaston, she includes a list describing many of the floral transfers used on RS porcelain. I just did a quick read-through of the list, and found 52 different...
  19. For my taste, RS porcelain reached its peak with these scenic pieces with the soft colours and pastural scenes. The molds still showed some Art Nouveau forms, but by this time the bright Tiffany colo...
  20. Hi: Your piece is actually a small tankard; there were no sugar bowls to match this pitcher. It was first sold between 1900 and 1905 with the Royal Vienna Germany mark (in sizes up to 12 inches tall...
