This is one of the very few piece I was able to save before leaving East-Germany. It was my grandmother's and the the story goes that she bought it in a jewelry store. I just don't know when. It must have been around the 1950's.

    The crown suggest it could be British but dont hold me against that because i could be wrong lol

    Well, it is a start. Thanks a lot, Poop.

    Thanks anyway, Mustangtony. I didn't even know that there is such a website for porcelain marks. Most of my porcelain is German: Schuman, Graf von Henneberg, Weimar.... They are easy to find - but with this one I don't know where to start.

    Limbach makes sense to me. It is part of the general area my grandmother lived in. I'll try to look it up and let know if I am successful. Thanks again :)

    When I searched yahoo china with crown and cursive L it brought up ludswigsburg of wurttemberg. 1793-1796. Check it out Crown and L both on example.

    Does look a little difference.

    Thanks mustangtony and nldionne. I checked Limbach and the website I used showed a different L. I will try now. :)

    Yes, you are right. It does look a bit different. I have a small vase that goes with this piece and I just check it but it has the same mark; just the number is different. I guess the mystery hasn't been solved yet. Thanks for all your help. :)

    I found a site when I searched ludswigsburg imitators on yahoo search called I think your mark is beside a maker called kitten. Same crown same cursive l (pretty sure)

    Thanks, nldionne. I'll check it tomorrow.
