Viktoria is not the pattern but the series / body name. As mentioned before most German producers never bothered with naming the patterns. Also, the original pattern (if one was present) would have normally been destroyed or at least heavily altered by the redecoration process,

Thanks Friedrich,, Didn`t think about that !!
Just Curious but when I tried looking up the pattern,,Viktoria,,I found a floral pattern with gold trim !! Was Viktoria the shape name or the pattern name ??

The Rosenthal part is more or less irrelevant here, but still: the original item was made by the [i]Rosenthal AG[/i] at their factory in Kronach, Bavaria, between 1933 and 1955. Series (body) name “VIKTORIA”. The item was then re-decorated by the [i]Metallporzellan Deusch[/i] from the town of Lorch in Baden-Wuerttemberg.

The silver overlay consists of coin grade silver and requires certain treatment as to not cause excessive tarnishing or damage. There are collectors out there which collect such goods either in general or by creator (Deusch, Veyhl, etc.). I have noticed that eBay closed auction prices in this sector are often far away from floor prices at meets or auctions, so one can not really use eBay as price range indicator.

[b]@marthahill:[/b] Some companies marked with country of origin regardless if an item was intended for import or not. Another exception would be goods in post-war Germany which were sold to the Allies via the NAAFI (UK) or PX (US) stores.

This site has a 2 MB size limit on pics !! Reduce the size of yours so we can see it !! This pic is way too large to tell anything about it except the mark which is pretty standard !! Made in Germany says its an import so its unlikely she bought it in Germany !!
