Bavaria is a region in Europe where many types of porcelain were made. Bavaria is one of Europe's oldest states, established about AD 485. In the nineteenth century, the potteries often included the word Bavaria in their marks. After 1871, the words Bavaria, Germany, were used. Listed here are pieces that include the name Bavaria in some form, but major porcelain makers, such as Rosenthal, are listed in their own categories.
