Q: I have two ceramic figurines marked with a crown over a shield. Can you identify the maker?

A: This mark was used by Von Schierholz’s Porcelain Manufactory Plaue. The company started in Plaue, Thuringia, Germany, in 1817. It was originally called C.G. Schierholz & Son Porcelain Manufactory Plaue, but it became Von Schierholz’s about 1900, after the family was knighted. This crown and shield mark was used beginning about 1907.
