The original founders were Hermann Kühnert and Magnus Tischer. Kühnert was related to the porcelain manufacturer Hermann Reinecke. In 1895 the Porzellanfabrik Kühnert & Tischer OHG was converted to the Porzellanfabrik Moschendorf AG. In 1907 Paul Reinecke as co-owner took the place of Kühnert. From 1937, Otto Reinecke was the sole owner. In 1957 the factory was closed.
This beautiful portrait cabinet plate, circa 1920, marked "Flora" for the pattern, depicts two lovely young ladies enjoying a garden setting. In the background are fluffy white clouds against a blue sky and at the base of the plate is a garland of white and variegated rose and pink blossoms on leaf laden stems. The factory decorated plate has used a technique called "Mixtion", a process of combining transfer designs along with some hand painted highlights. The gorgeous sculptured border is decorated with gold. The plate measures 8 7/8" across and is stamped in green with a crown, RM within a wreath and Bavaria, the mark used by the Moschendorf factory from 1904-1938 on products for export; and in red "flora" the pattern name. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
