Is anyone familiar with this mark or style. Thank you.

I may be incorrect, but I think your plate is what is called ‘Royal Vienna’.
The mark is mistakenly called a ‘Beehive’, but is actually a stylized version of a shield called the bindenschild (the coat-of-arms for the Austrian Hapsburg family) It is one of the most copied marks.
Some info on the original mark

This beehive mark looks exactly like the beehive mark of :
Ackermann & Fritze (Volkstedt, Germany) ca 1908 – 1951.
See link:
And see included picture from that site.

According to the Kovel's Dictionary of Marks on pottery and porcelain, the Edmé Samson firm of Paris (1845-1905) also reproduced this mark.

Thank you both so much. I apologize for posting this in the forum. I thought I was an Asian piece. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
