If you don’t, however, they can lead you well astray of the truth.
For example, hyphens over the letters “RO” were used for 1985 to 1991, the letters “RY” from 1992 to 1999 and the letters “RA” 2000 to 2004.I also welcome any photos of signatures or examples. In the future we would like to be able to create a site that will be an inspiration to collectors all over the world.We would like to make more theme pages based on artists or motives.More information can be gleaned from the other markings as well.
For example, the marking “NMK” is that of the decorator, who unfortunately I have no records for. This model number indicates it was one of many designed by Christian Thomsen (1860-1921).
He designed this one in 1905, and my records indicate it still was in production as late as 1981.
