I found a set of six cups and saucers, made in Austria. I believe they are souvenir cups, possibly vintage, but I have not found much information on the cups. They are all in pretty good shape; no chips or cracks just a bit of wear on some of the gold. The cups show three different historical landmarks (two of each image). The mark on the back reads: Made in Austria, Qualitatserzeugnis, EIGL. The quality of the porcelain is not bad, but I have seen better decorations.

Thanks for looking:)

    Aldo78, you found a very similar one! Cool! The porcelain mark is the same, for sure. I kept searching for the manufacturer and couldn't come up with anything. Maybe it was only a small factory?
    Anyway, thanks for your link:)

    Eigl was a Little factory in Austria Linz-Ottensheim an later in Tyrol. The son of the founder and owner is a friend of me.
  9. freiheit freiheit, 4 years ago
    Cool!! Thanks, Sterndi. I wasn't able to find anything on it. The only thing I found on line was a few cups and saucers without any information. But I must admit I am not very good in researching anything:(
    Do you know if this factory is still in business?
  10. Sterndi Sterndi, 4 years ago
    The factory was founded by Mr. Eigl about 1965 in Linz/Ottensheim and he prodeced coffee and tea-cups, flower vases, ashtrays and other souveniers in porcelain with Pictures of towns and citys. My mother collected this Cups and we brought them for her from Schooltrips etc.
    The dishwashers were the End of the factory. The production of this Cups in Asia was much cheaper an EIGL had to close his factory about 1985 - 1990

    My mother now is 80 years old and most of her Cups have been broken by the time. She gave her last 6 Cups to me ten years ago and i promised her to add her eigl-collection. Today I have 122 Cups with the golden ribbon, but not your 6 Cups and saucers from Linz. Do you sell them? It would be a great pleasure for me, if you could send 3, or all 6 to me, "home to Austria" ;o)

    Sterndi, thanks so much for your insight into the Eigl history. It is so sad to hear the same stories again and again. I collect vintage and antique items because, among other reasons, I value the way they were made, and I avoid modern, mass-produced wherever and whenever I can.
    Ich sammel hauptsaechlich deutsches Porzellan, konnte es aber nicht ueber das Herz bringen, diese Tassen im Geschaeft zu lassen. Ich wuede sie gerne verkaufen, aber das Problem ist die Post. Ich werde mich erkundigen, was es kosten wuerde, die Tassen zu schicken und lasse es Ihnen wissen.
  12. Sterndi Sterndi, 4 years ago
    woher kommt dein perfektes Deutsch?
    von einer super Übersetzungs-Software oder von germanischen Wurzeln in deiner Biographie?????
    Eigl-Tassen dürfen nie in einem Geschäft stehen bleiben, sondern sollten immer den Weg zu mir finden können. ;o)
    Ich kann dir vieles an deutschem Porzellan zukommen lassen und die Post will ja auch überleben.
  13. freiheit freiheit, 4 years ago
    Meine deutsche Sprache ist ein Resultat meiner "germanischen Wurzeln" (aber leider nicht mehr perfekt, da ich sehr viel vergessen habe). Ich bin in der ehemaligen DDR geboren, habe in Potzdam studiert und 1985 nach Kanada ausgewandert.
    Ja, die Post muss auch ueberleben; ich werde mich erkundigen, was es kosten wird, und dann koennen wir sehen:)
  14. Sterndi Sterndi, 4 years ago
    Habe ich mich also nicht geirrt! ;o)
    Ich habe 1978 in Ungarn ein Mädel aus der DDR kennen gelernt und wir haben uns Hals über Kopf in einander verliebt. Wir haben uns viele Briefe geschrieben, uns aber dann doch aus den Augen verloren, da wir uns nicht mehr treffen konnten. Für uns kam also der Mauerfall 20 Jahre zu spät.
  15. freiheit freiheit, 4 years ago
    So viele traurige Geschichten! Zum Glueck ist das alles jetzt vorbei. Mein Mann hat damals als auslaendischer Gaststudent an seinem PhD gearbeitet. Er durfte nicht in der DDR bleiben, und in seinem Land hatten wir auch keine Zukunft. Nach einer schweren Zeit konnte ich endlich nach Kanada kommen, wo er auf mich gewartet hatte. Zum Glueck hat das nicht 20 Jahre gedauert:)
