RS Germany fine china hibiscus plate.
*Beautiful plate with no chips or cracks. In good condition for its age.
*Measures approx 16cm in diameter.
*RS Germany is part of the wording in marks used by the Tillowitz, Germany, factory of Reinhold Schlegelmilch from 1914 until about 1945. The Schlegelmilch families made porcelains marked in many ways. RS Germany was printed variously in red, orange, green, and blue. This plate also has the mark for RS made in (German) Poland, which is the mark used by the company after 1945. So it has been given both stamps as it must have been caught in transition from one to the other.
*RS porcelain is thin, lightweight and translucent. Translucent means that light will pass through it. A simple test is to hold an object up to a bright light or window. Now place your open fingers behind the object. Your fingers should cast a dark shadow through the object.
