Dating sitzendorf marks
However, on close inspection, attributing your mark to Sitzendorf may, in fact be incorrect.
The actual crossed lines of the Sitzendorfer mark from the 1887 - 1900 are not quite the same as this mark.
The company of who in 1890 founded his own porcelain company under the name of ⇒E.&A. At first the company in Germany only concentrated on the items created in the Rudolstadt factory but with expanding business and the following opening of further subsidiaries in both France (decoration studio in the Limoges area) and Austrian Bohemia (second studio and warehouse near Carlsbad) in 1891 the Rudolstadt-based company also started to function as coordinator and export relay for all subsidiaries while the London-based (and more glass-related) business remained nearly independent.
Knowing that, it's easy to see that claims of the German company being named are pure nonsense, even if the name is valid for the U. Another factor which lead to confusion in this matter was the fact that the marks registered in Germany were not applied for by the German subsidiary itself but were registered directly via the U. mother company which allowed it to keep hands on the marks even if the German subsidiary should turn bankrupt or run into other difficulties.

The forum Help Elf says:-Elsewhere on this site this double crossed lines mark has been attributed to Sitzendorf of Thuringia - a splendid 150 year old company still trading, having survived being burned to the ground in the 19th Century, dodged the bombs of WW2 and the avoided the suffocation of the authoritarian Soviet regime.
Your mark has two double lines crossing over each another, the Sitzendorf mark has a double line crossed with a single slash (looking something like the capital letter H from some angles).
So I looked into this further and we are getting into quite obscure waters here because none of my general reference books show either the older Sitzendorfer mark, or your mark.
The year and the stamping on the porcelain indicate under which of the owner managers the piece was produced.
Everything from the Macheleidt period would obviously be the most valuable (determined of course by condition).
Many years later, the landlord and resident of Sitzendorf , born in the town of Lichte, was honoured with the permission of re-establishing a porcelain factory in Sitzendorf on November 18th 1850.
