This is a nice Austrian Porcelain Platter. It has a garland of pink and white flowers around the rim and a ring of gold above the flowers and around the rim. The edge is scalloped. The background is bright white. The back has the manufacturer's mark – a crown, with two shields, Vienna and Austria. There are impress marks on the back that read: TK, 53 5, and 1.
There were reportedly four New York importers that used this mark. They were PH Leonard, Bawo & Dotter, Charles L. Dwenger and Paul A. Straub & Co. The mark was used on Vienna China from Count Thun's factory in KláSterec.
This may be pattern VNN9 or AU56.
It dates to around the early 1900's.
It measures approximately 12" long by 8 ¾" wide.
The condition is good. There are no chips or cracks. There is normal wear on the gold gilt and utensil marks. There are also a couple of marks under the glaze.
We have two available in the same condition. The price listed is for one.
