The beehive mark is that of Royal Vienna. It has no arrows or other marks. Yours is not Royal Vienna and although it was made in Austria the mark is unknown. I would guess that it's a copy or knock-off with minimal value.
Thank you Molly, I got 2 in a box of stuff , a woman was selling from her mothers estate, whole box of stuff $10. I will post dishes , with same mark on back soon
When I opened Molly's link the Title in the heading reads:
While the mark is the same as yours IT IS NOT "Royal Vienna" as I stated, it is in the "style" of Royal Vienna, which is double talk for fake.
Telemach auf der Ynsel Calipso is the pattern name. It is German and translates to "Telemach on the Island Calipso", or "Telemachus on the Island Calypso". This refers to Greek mythology according to Homer's Odyssey of the god Telemachus defending his mother? or sister? Calypso.
Although fake, the hammer price was $2,160 whereas it was pre-appraised for $800-1200. Both the linked set and your plates are very pretty and I would've paid $10. too.
Thank you Tom
