Ludwig Linder founded the first porcelain factory in Mitterteich, Bavaria in 1867. Over the years the factory employed more than 300 workers with porcelain decorator, Julius Muller heading up the designs. The backstamp to these plates was used from 1920 on (please see last pics at left)...as these are pieces obtained from a friend's estate, I am dating them to the 1940's.
