Here for your consideration is a L. Hutschenreuther Selb, Bavaria "Favorite" pattern dinnerware set, 51 pieces, c. 1920's. This set is hand decorated with a wide ivory band, 24 karat gold borders and trim, nicely accented with a black line to frame the ivory band and gold trim areas throughout the piece. The 1920's and 1930's high quality porcelain china was sometimes simpler, but was made elegant and stylish with its heavy gold encrusted patterns.
I believed that this set was decorated by an American fine china decorating studio, such as, J. H. Stouffer, Chicago, Ill. [STOUFFER black back stamp and gold mark seen on similar L. Hutschenreuther "Favorite" dinnerware online]. Also, found this pattern on Replacements website for Stouffer China, pattern #SFR53. Many potteries located in Germany that produced high quality white porcelain sold their blanks ['Favorite"?] to other potteries with decorating studios and American entrepreneurs who made china under special brand names for American importers.
I have included two additional serving pieces in this set, (1) covered bowl w/handles and (1) round serving bowl [large]. The bowl has a crack starting at the top of the rim and the covered bowl's lid has been repaired [I most say, very poorly repaired], otherwise, the handled bowl is in excellent condition. All other 51 pieces are in excellent used condition with no cracks, chips or repairs. SEE PHOTOS FOR DETAILS.

Hutschenreuther, Selb Porcelain History:
In 1857 Lorenz and Christian Hutschenreuther established their own porcelain factory in Selb, Germany. They were the sons of Carl Magnus Hutschenreuther [C.M. Hutschenreuther] who operated an existing porcelain factory in Hohenberg a.d. Eger, which is known for its porcelain production in Northern Bavaria.
In 1917 Hutschenreuter of Selb began producing figurines after purchasing the art division of the Paul Muller porcelain factory. Emil Mundel, the managing director for Hutschenreuther was very instrumental in the execution of the acquisition of Muller's assets. Once the sculptors and skilled laborers were in place, Hutschenreuter started to solicit its designs for its sculptures and dinnerware from the Selb Technical School of Porcelain. By 1926, the art division of the company won wide acclaim and its porcelain figurines were highly sought after.
The factory would become known later as Lorenz Hutschenreuther, Selb [LHS]. In 1927 the LHS company expanded and took over the Tirschenreuth porcelain factory. In 1969 the Lorenz Hutschenreuther AG purchased the majority of shares in C.M. Hutschenreuther.
In 2000 Rosenthal AG bought the name Hutschenreuther as a brand and continues to use the "Hutschenreuther" brand on porcelain and bone china products.
