Antique Dresden China portrait plate. c.1882-1927. aka, The Potters Co-operative Co.; see pg. 60, mark 16 in Lehner's Book of Marks for a better view of the mark. This plate is quite old as you can see in the pictures, but the face of this lady is still quite stunning! (Marie Antoinette I presume). Backside is very discolored and is backstamped: 'Dresden China'. This plate is 10.25 wide w/no chips or cracks; some scratches, and does have a lot of crazing, and worn areas mostly around rim. Quite pretty despite the aging flaws. It would really be beautiful framed and hung in a bedroom or powder room, or anywhere you like to display your pretty antique plates! Especially nice in a Victorian style home!
Attractive antique game platter featuring a woodlands pheasant scene. p. c.1882-1903, Liverpool, Ohio. It is marked on the backside: 'Dresden Semi-Porcelain' inside a wreath. The mark appears in the 1988 Lehner's book of Marks on pg. 60, as mark 15, and dates from the above time period. The company name is Brunt Family Associates which was known by several other names; part of the Potter's Cooperative. This platter is 13.75 x 10 inches. It has some flaws: all over crazing, and is quite discolored on the backside; also has a small chip on backside rim which barely permeates front. It is nice despite the aging flaws; it would be great in a hunting lodge; cottage; bed-and-breakfast, etc.
