Title Bisque porcelain plaque of Brandenburg Gate
Nationality German
Period 1959
Price £75.00

This Berlin factory marked (impressed sceptre) bisque porcelain plaque in a box has, on the obverse, an image of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, an iconic motif of the city. This would probably have been made as a piece for the tourists of the era.

The plaque is marked on the reverse, 'BERLIN 1959'. The inside of the box lid has been damaged somewhat - a bogus label had been stuck in and has been rather roughly removed.

There is no damage to the porcelain, although there is a tiny brown mark (seemingly on the surface of the glaze) on the top edge near the left corner).

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
