  • ES Suhl Picture Frame

    Q: I have a picture frame that I treasure. It was given to me by my grandmother and I’d like to know more about it. It is white porcelain with painted flowers and gold trim. The mark on the back looks like an E over an S with 1811 in the bottom curve of the S and Prufsia (is it Prussia?) below. Do you know the history from the mark? And can you give me its value?

I have joined a new group of adults who meet once a week to crayon or paint in elaborate adult coloring books now best sellers at book stores.
