Maker and Importer:
Imperial China Manufacturers Austria. The back stamp in orange is on the back.
Wheelock Co. Importers United States.
Wheelock had an impressive history of family operated businesses of imported European ceramic and porcelain souvenir sales. They became the largest U.S. importer of the 19th century. It began with the father W.G. Wheelock selling china at his store based in Indiana, U.S., long before the civil war, and business expanded with the work of his three sons Charles, George and Arthur in Wisconsin and Illinois to start.
The brothers enjoyed a long stint of imported European souvenir sales that ended at the beginning of WW1. Operations ended sometime in the early 20th century.
