Petziman has an excellent web site with many superb figures for sale, as well as copies of his CD which I recommend highly. Niecol: Emmy Niecol "Rosenthal Kunst- und Zierporzellan 1897 - 1945".
This is the definitive book on Rosenthal (in 5 volumes) costing an astronomical sum. Volumes 4 and 5 will deal with Bahnhof-Selb and are due to be released in 2003.
This is a listing of the better-known marks and backstamps and enough information so that you can learn more about your porcelains. Obviously, the original name of a German company was in German. "1895–1900" means the mark may have been used during those years.
Research and experience will tell you if the color, texture, weight, design, or general "feel" of the piece is right. When translated, several possible forms could have been used. If the initials in the mark were directly connected to the foreign name, it may have a more awkward translation. If it is a date such as "1895 ," it is not known how long after 1895 the mark was in use. The date could have been used at any time during the years on either side of 1895. Most of the time they are from the first year that any predecessor company worked until the last year any successor company worked, provided that the name or management was continuous.
I see this on e Bay occasionally where it seems to sell for about US0; I will be eternally grateful to Axel and Adele who emailed me out of the blue and offered to send me a photocopy of their copy.
