  • Pattern: Orchard / SCH16
  • Made in Germany
  • Vintage:  1960 - 1970
  • Details:  This is a beautiful porcelain platter, or chop plate, made in Germany by Schumann Arzberg.  It has a gorgeous decoration of apples and nuts in vibrant colors, we don't believe this pattern has a name, simply known as SCH16, but we like the name Orchard.  The border has other smaller fruit as well as a scalloped embossing and gold rim.  It is quite a large platter at 12" inches round and slightly deeper in the center. HAND WASHING is required to maintain condition.   It is stamped on the bottom with the Schumann Arzberg logo: "Bavaria Schumann Arzberg Germany" plus it has the blue E&R logo. This specific stamp was used between 1960 and 1970, the Golden Crown E&R relationship with Schumann ended in 1976 so we can safely assume this platter is from the time indicated above.  We have seen this platter selling for as high as $130, plus shipping fees and this one is in excellent condition.  This would make a wonderful gift. Gorgeous on a holiday table, thinking Fall and Thanksgiving celebrations!

Schuman Arzberg was originally founded in Arzberg, Bavaria, Germany by Christian Heinrich Schumann in 1881 as "Schumann & Riess".  When Mr. Heinrich passed away, his wife,  Christiana Schumann lead the company and changed its name to "Carl Schumann & Co". c.1892,  after their youngest son, Carl Schumann, (born in 1871).  Carl took over the company in 1896.  There was another name change in 1923 when the company became a corporation and was renamed, "Carl Schumann Porzellanfabrik AG".  And so it continued until 1926 when Carl Schumann passed away.  His son, Carl Schumann II took over the company.  Carl the second (II), who had studied in the USA in the 1920's founded the "Schumann China Corporation of New York" in 1928.  The Schumann China Corporation distributed Schumann products in the U. S. from 1928 until 1933 when it closed.  The Bavaria Germany company continued on.  In 1961 it was Carl III, who took over running the company, when Carl III resigned another branch of the family ran the business.  The business was reorganized, but was eventually sold to investors in 1990.   It finally closed in 1994.
