It has continued to modern times. The marks have changed through the years. A stylized crest, the name Royal Bayreuth, and the word Bavaria appear in slightly different forms from 1870 to about 1919. Later dishes may include the words U.S. Zone, the year of the issue, or the word Germany instead of Bavaria.
