Rosenthal Porcelain painted by Pickard China Company

Pickard China Company was founded by Wilder Austin Pickard in 1894. Initially they were based in Wisconsin USA but moved to Chicago USA in 1897.

Pickard imported 'blank' porcelain from several of Europe's leading porcelain manufacturers which included Rosenthal. The porcelain was hand-painted by artists several of whom were from Europe. Various Pickard marks were added at different periods.

In 1941 Pickard China Company moved to Antioch, Illinois USA which included a porcelain production facility. (No doubt brought about by the war in Europe, the disruption to supplies of 'blanks' and the ever increasing costs of shipping.)
