Charles Ahrenfeldt began exporting porcelain to New York in the 1830's. In the late 1860'she established a firm with Limoges and began a larger export business to the US. In 1894 after his death his son Charles took over the company until 1917 when a M. Grob purchased it. In 1969 the factory closed for good. As for Ovington Bros., they were a high-end crystal and china store in New York on 5th Avenue. Famous for their imports that were made especially for them. Run by three brothers they were in business from the late 1800's. In the 1920's their name changed to just Ovington. This set of 6 large porcelain plates measure 10 1/4". I have seen about 6 different flower basket designs in an assortment of colors and various decorations but only one piece at a time is offered for sale. Due to limited production and markets of the times, these pieces can be extremely difficult to locate and replace. They display a A10b factory mark that was in use from 1894 until 1930.All hand painted plates are in very good condition aside from “tisk, tisk, tisk” improper stacking resulting in wear to their marbled blue background.
