Information on gold trim china needed

Post by Garth Cop » Mon, 22 Jul 1996 04:00:00



I have a set of china containing 12 each of the following - dinner,
salad, and bread plates, salad and dessert bowls, cups and saucers; 1
each of the following - oval platter, serving bowl, gravy boat, soup
tureen and cream and sugar bowls.  On the back is the following:
(a picture of a crown), under that is "H&Co", under that is "Selb",
under that is "Bavaria", beneath that is "Germany", beneath that is
"Heinrich", beneath that each piece is stamped "U.S. Zone", with each
piece individually numbered.  The pattern has clusters of flowers
around the rims with gold trim on the edges.  Does anyone know anything
about this or the value?  Thanks in advance - your help would be much
appreciated!

Heinrich were apparently the first of the three major Selb factories
to restart production after WWII (the other two are Hutschenreuther
and Rosenthal). I think Heinrich is now part of the Villeroy & Boch
group - and they're still going strong!

Your service would be produced between 1945 and 1949. Sorry I've no
idea of the value ... nowadays new Heinrich products seem to be
slightly less expensive on average than those of the other two, but
that doesn't say anything about your particular service.

You could try writing to them - 'Heinrich & Co, D-95100 Selb' should
get there.
