We have a set of plates, cups, saucers etc all with the same

Customer Question

We have a set of plates, cups, saucers etc all with the same pattern - mainly white with red edging and gold detailing, with pictures of ladies on them also around the edges. We have been told that some are original and then others were made later for the family which would explain 2 makes of the same design:
Some of the items have no mark. Some have a BB mark which appears to possibly be Beyer & Bock (although not 100% sure), and some have what looks like it could be an LL mark - but we have been unable to find a picture of the LL one online anywhere. So we would like to find out what this mark is. Some of the items with this possible LL mark also have indentations on the back.

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Let me see what I can find to identify the marks.

Is this enough for you?

Kind regards,

Doris

Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 year ago.

I found your marks.

The BB mark is that of Worcester Porcelains of Worcester, UK. It is called the "Barr" mark as it named after former owners of factory - the Barr family. The mark dates ca 1890.

The LL mark is the mark of a Porcelain Decorating Studio of either Germany or Austria ca 1910-1930s. The impressed mark you see is for the factory that made the blank (white china) that was to be decorated by the studio.

See the following marks.

A private seller to a dealer can expect 30-60% of retail value.

I hope I have helped you.
