It is said that in the 1920-30's the factory used to let factory workers buy 3rds & 4ths for very little money ..that resulted in "a lot" of 3rds & 4ths being made, many of them having nothing wrong with them.This is a dynamic site - constantly under development - please mail your questions, corrections and suggestion - they will be taken seriously.Also the data of the designing artist will be an important indication of possible age.The Aluminia Faience factory date its history to the year 1862 founded by August Schittt (1834 - 1863).The other great Copenhagen manufactory Royal Copenhagen had a system for each pattern: the pattern name had a number at the series of items in that particular pattern had another number.At B&G there is not shown pattern numbers, but each item has a number, which is the same at all pattern for the same kind of item.: It is possible to date pieces from Bing & Grondahl porcelain looking at the factory mark at the base. Also I found that at least on Christmas plates in the 1960s there seems to be some mix up of the back stamps.B & G, Bing & Grondahl refer to the founders: Fred. Grndahl (1819-1856), technical director; the brothers M. On figurines with less room for the stamp - the different partial markings make it even harder to date the pieces.
