I received this pretty vintage Bavarian plate as a gift from a friend who knows I am a plate addict.
The delicate plate has a gold rim and handpainted red strawberries. The plate is marked with the green undgerglaze mark R.C. with swords and a crown on top with Bavaria written below and the word “Tilly” which is the name of the pattern.
R.C. is Rosenthal & Co. When I looked up the origin of this porcelain mark, I learned that Phillip Rosenthal opened his first factory in 1891 and the first world exposition of his products was in 1900. Since then, until today, Rosenthal has been a renowned name for quality porcelain. This mark was used between 1898 and 1906. (Source: http://woulfeman.com/European%20Porcelain%20Markings%201.htm)

Hi, Nice to “meet you” at Pink Saturday. I really enjoyed your lovely plates. Brought back sweet family memories as my grandparents had different ones with a similar style of painting on them. Thank you. Have a lovely week!
What an exquisite plate!
The pattern is beautifully detailed, indeed.
Truly a gift to treasure throughout the years!

Hi Laura, I have just found your blog while visiting Pink Saturday. I have loved looking at all your pretty china. I particularly like Coalport. I live in the UK and have been mulling over the idea of starting my own blog for some time but have been put off because many bloggers have long posts and I just don’t have the time. Your entries are perfect and so beautiful too. I think I am one step closer to starting my own blog thanks to you. I have bookmarked your site and will be a regular viewer. Happy 2012 and thanks again.
Your blog is beautiful and so full of information. I just love it and I love the historical facts you add to the beautiful photography. Vintage and antique glassware, etc. just fascinates me.
Thank you for sharing your love of fine porcelain and china and the knowledge you’ve gleened! dix—
