A: Thanks for your very interesting e-mail and beautiful pictures. The molds of your dishes, called Pompadour , are certainly Rosenthal and just like ones we had at one time, but in a different color. What is puzzling to me is the lack of the Rosenthal mark on them. I'm thinking that perhaps a decorating studio did the finished product, using Rosenthal blanks and the starburst mark might be their mark.

Q: I have this beautiful large plate by O&E.G. Royal Austria Rose Dubarry. The story is that an elderly German neighbor gave this to my great grandmother for being a good friend. I'm curious to know more about it, especially the pattern. PT in Ninilchik, Alaska, USA

If you've inherited or purchased some pieces of antique china, it helps to know the process for learning more about your treasures. Often, the piece holds many clues, and understanding how to read these can help you identify the pattern. From that, you can get a sense of your china's value and history.

Before you can identify the pattern, you need to figure out what kind of china you have. Because porcelain production originated in China , Europeans and Americans used the term "china" to describe any fine porcelain piece. However, there are actually several different kinds of china, each of which uses a specific production process. Since many manufacturers specialized in a single type of china, this can help narrow down the possibilities for your china pattern.

Most fine china features an identification mark that helps to identify the manufacturer of the piece. Knowing this information is important for identifying the pattern. In many cases, there may be more than one stamp on an item, sometimes indicating where the piece was manufactured and where it was painted and glazed. Additionally, backstamps offer insight into the date of a piece, since most manufacturers changed stamps every few years.
