We are pleased to offer these Mint Condition Tirschenreuth Bavaria Orchard Fruit Dessert Plate Set. The set includes Five plates. The plates have a fine white china body with the rim trimmed in gleaming gold. Each plate of this Tirschenreuth Bavaria Orchard Fruit Dessert Plate Set has a different rendering of ripe and luscious fruit in the center.

There are two different hallmarks on the plates. Two of the plates have in green the PT shield and in green lettering "Bavaria Tirschenreuth Germany"; under that lettering in red is "Pasco" enclosed in a diamond and "25 42". The other four plates have a blue oval with a crown in the center and "CN. The lettering on the oval " Made in Western Germany". This stamp was applied over an old Henirich mark.

This version of the CN mark includes Western Germany, meaning it was put into use after late 1949 when Germany was divided into East and West. The undecorated plate must have been whiteware from the Heinrich factory and then eventually decorated by CN. This is assuming that CN was a decorator.

The Tirschenreuth Bavaria Orchard Fruit Dessert Plates measure 7-7/8 inches in diameter.

Each plate of this Tirschenreuth Bavaria Orchard Fruit Dessert Plate Set set is in Mint condition with no defects noted. The graphics are crisp, the colors vibrant, the gold banding is intact showing no wear. They appear to have never been used.

About Tirschenreuth Hutschenreuther:

Hutschenreuther China Karl Mangus Hutschenreuther established one of the first private porcelain decorating factories in Germany in Hohenberg, Bavaria in 1814.

In addition to decorating white ware, Hutchenreuther wanted to produce his own patterns, and after an eight year struggle with the Bavarian Government (which was not interested in creating competition for the state-owned factory), Hutschenreuther received the necessary permission to begin production in 1822. Upon his death in 1845, his son Lorenz founded his own Hutschenreuther Porcelain company in Selb. Son Christian and widow Johanna also worked to carry on the company tradition.

In the early part of the 20th century, Hutschenreuther grew quickly by absorbing factories at Altrohlau (1909), Arzburg (1918) and Tirschenreuth (1927). The branches of the company were united in 1969. Hutschenreuther was a trend-setter and enabled Germany to gain an excellent reputation in the European china industry. The Hutschenreuther "Mark of the Lion" is a symbol of excellence that continues to this day.
