Manufacturer: Made in Czechoslovakia
This vintage floral china lemon plate is marked: Epiag Royal / Czechoslovakia / Brent Wo.
OEPIAG & EPIAG was an association of porcelain factories. It was formed in 1918 by the Vienna (Austrian) government, and named OEPIAG (Österreichische Porzellan Industrie AG - Austrian Porcelain Industry). In 1920, to reflect the creation of the new country, Czechoslovakia, the name was changed to EPIAG (Erste Böhemische Porzellan Industrie AG - First Bohemian Porcelain Industry).
It is important to note that OEPIAG/EPIAG is not a factory. Each factory was maintained as an independent business, but joined together to promote Bohemian porcelain. Most of the member factories (but not all) used a form of the association's name as a Mark. For factory information, see Marks for each individual factory.

Proeschold & Co, Dallwitz (Dalovice, Czechia)
Springer & Co, Elbogen (Loket, Czechia)
