    Vintage Formal White Dinner Plate by Rosenthal Racine Hutschenreuther Haviland Johnson Brothers Gutherz |

    This simple pattern of white china was made by a variety of potteries, as can be seen in the different backstamps. The pattern likely evolved from Rosenthal potteries, which flourished in pre-WWII Germany. The mold is identical to plates offered here, marked Johnson Brothers, Racine, Gutherz and Haviland. There are slight differences in diameter for the plates; most are 9-5/8".

    Please choose from the available plates, and, as always, contact us with any questions. All are in excellent vintage condition, with very few utensil marks or wear. (Unfortunately, there were many in this estate that were crazed and had other imperfections. We won't sell those.)

    Here is a bit of history about Gutherz potteries:
    The O. & E.G. company started in Altrolau, Bohemia in 1884 by Oscar Gutherz and Maximilian Marx, backed by an American named Lazarus Straus, an importer in New York City (who actually owned Macy’s in 1887). Originally Oscar and Max would only decorate china but eventually started making their own porcelain pieces. Their mark was a red circle with the words “Marx & Gutherz – Carlsbad” and the word “Austria” outside the circle. Oscar’s brother Edgar bought out Marx in 1898, and the firm became O. & E.G., (Oscar & Edgar Gutherz). They changed their hallmark to a green wreath with the word ‘Royal’ in the middle and “Austria” at the bottom. (Altrolau, Bohemia is now Stara Role, Czech Republic).
