1950's German Ceramic Dressing Table Set? Maybe? Help needed

Post by seandux on Tue Feb 24, 2015 5:15 pm

HI All.  I found this small dressing table set in Yorkshire in the UK.  Small, ceramic, but unfortunately no marks that I know to identify maker.

All pieces are marked - the clearest being on the underside of the tray - marked FOREIGN 110 over an A - impressed marks - all the other pieces have the same mark.  I'm assuming from theses marks that it is German and pre mid-1950 when I understand they started to use GERMANY

Consisting of a tray, 2 candlesticks and a lidded bowl, all pieces are 'kidney' shaped with an overal green shade and gilded around the rims.

The tray measures 22 cms x 17 cms (8.75 inches x 6.75 inches)

The candlesticks measure 9 cms x 8 cms (3.5 inches x 3.3 inches)

The lidded box measures 11 cms x 8 cms x 5 cms ((4.25 inches x 3.3 inches x 2 inches) L x W x D

Any help would be much appreciateed

The look made me feel inclined towards Austria

Just a thought - A for Austria or is that too obvious?

This does niggle me because I think I knew where it was made but that was around 30 years ago and it's been forgotten.

It's Bay Keramik with an early decor from ca. 1954.
