I'm curious about this coffee set. Is it Meissen or another maker? The dragon-headed coffeepot is very heavy, is that for insulation? In addition to the pictured pieces, there are 4 cups, saucers and dessert plates. I don't know the pattern name. If this is Meissen, what would be a fair price to pay? An elderly friend offered it to me. Many thanks.
The mark you show is from the Pfeiffer period (1924-1934) we know that from the dot on the top of the swords. Two incisions means a factory second, probably because of the firing crack on the foot rim. Are the marks on all the pieces similar? The saucer underside you show has gilder's marks so probably it was gilded and painted in the manufactory with simple flowers (schlichte Malerei) not sold as white. The shape in neoclassical and has been around since the beginning of the 19th century, so if in good condition I would try to get it under EUR 175 (assuming you are still in Saxony).
Thanks for your answer. I wondered if that was why the mark was cut. I went back and looked at the other pieces and discovered this may be a set that was collected piece by piece. I'm attaching a mark for a saucer, a sugar bowl and the coffeepot. They are all slightly different and not cut. The majority of the pieces look like the saucer (first pic). Would this effect the price? And yes, still in Saxony, so it's fine to tell me in Euros. Hope you're having better weather in Rochester!
