Royal Bonn Mark

- Elayne Walters
Mark of Franz Anton Mehlem's pottery made in Bonn, Germany. A number of marks were used by this manufacturer, most including the initials FM, a crown, and the word Bonn. Some show a date of "1755," which refers to earlier Bonn pottery manufacturers, rather than the date a piece was made.

Note: This particular example is partially stamped so the words "Royal" above the crown and "Bonn" below the crest are barely legible, nor is the "1755" under the FM in the center of the mark readable.
