Reinhold and Erdmann Schlegelmilch were long thought to be brothers jointly operating one factory, but they actually ran two different factories located in Suhl, Germany in direct competition with one another.Collecting organizations often continue research for years ferreting out truths and discarding inaccuracies, which is another good reason for joining up with them to exchange information whenever possible and utilizing the resources they provide .In actual fact, there were two factories in Suhl, Erdmann's and Reinhold's.
Reinhold Schlegelmilch started his porcelain works in Suhl, Germany, in 1869.Porcelain made by Schlegelmilch factories is referred to by collectors as RS Prussia.Reinhold's factory was founded and initially owned by Reinhold, and subsequently with his two sons, Ehrhard and Arnold.Arnold took over an existing porcelain factory in Tillowitz in 1894, and continued to run it as part of the Reinhold Schlegelmilch enterprise until he died in 1934.Because fakes and replicas or reproductions abound, it is extremely important to be knowledgeable of the Prussia marks, molds, and transfers in determining authenticity. There are many different molds in the Prussia world.
Mary Frank Gaston’s four book series identify many of the Prussia molds by number. Many of the older style Prussia molds have been identified in Leland and Carol Marple’s books.
However, We do not make any claim to know the authenticity of these marks as valid Belleek and not imitations. 1537 Matthew-Tyndale Bible 1909 Honus Wagner Baseball Card 1933 Double Eagle Gold Piece A.
