Q: A Bavarian tea set has been in my family for several decades. The mark on the bottom of the dishes is “Porzellanfabrik Arzberg, Arzberg, (Bayern).” Please tell me something about the maker and when the set was made.

A: Porzellanfabrik Arzberg (translation: Porcelain Factory Arzberg) has been in business in Arzberg, Bavaria (“Bayern” in German), Germany, since 1927. But the mark you describe was used only from 1930 to 1947.
