Schumann Chop Plate Bird on Flower A Robin on Single Flower Bavaria Arzberg Germany Gold Crown


A large chop plate or platter with a Robin design manufactured from 1950 to 1960s. The E&R is the distributor, the logo dates to 1950 to 1960. The Schumann logo dates from 1960 to 1970s. So around 1960s is what I figure.

This chop plate measures 11.5 inches in diameter. There are no chips or cracks, and the gold trim is intact. Some surface wear yet in very good vintage condition.

Heinrich and Christiana Schumann founded the Carl Schumann Porcelain Factory in Arzberg in 1881 in Arzberg, Bavaria, Germany. The factory closed in 1994.

Zeh, Ebeling & Reuss Co. was established by the German emigrants Theodore Ebeling and Frederick Reuss and the owner of a glassware and china business, John E. F. Zeh. The company imported porcelain, earthenware, and ironstone from several European countries. When Zeh left the company in 1900; it was renamed Ebeling & Reuss Co. and moved to Devon, Pennsylvania. The company's import volume peaked in the late 1940's/50's and with the company remaining in the Ebeling and Reuss families.

The company imported products from Alboth & Kaiser (Germany) Furstenberg, Goebel, Heinrich & Co. and Carl Schumann Arzberg.

The 1980’s was the beginning of the end for many distributors and glass makers in America. Ronald Rapelje purchased the assets the same year and moved Ebeling & Reuss to Allentown, Pennsylvania. The company was eventually sold to the Strathmore Corporation of Pennsylvania in April 2002.

Frequently Asked Questions

Very Good Vintage Condition

I use the term "very good vintage condition" for pieces that are in excellent condition. Yet please remember that these items have mostly been used before; so they will have a few imperfections. Anything that is obvious will be noted in the description and/or pictures.

Good Vintage Condition

When the description uses the term "good vintage" condition; it means that it does have some flaws (and should be noted in the description). Less than perfect, but still in good shape.

Jimmy works really hard to ensure a safe delivery of your package. But we have had damage through the shipper in the past. If you would please send us a picture or two of the damage box and/or its contents. We can file for insurance and will refund the costs of the items.

What does vintage mean?

Vintage means an item is at least 20 years old or at the most 99 years old. Once it is 100 years old, you can call it an antique. Please be aware that you are purchasing a used item. We keep trying to improve our descriptions and pictures to point out chips or dents or other issues a piece may have.

Saying that, there may be small vintage wear that go unnoticed. I do go over the piece when I buy it, wash it, take its picture, write its description or weigh it. Yet still, sometimes I miss it. The right light will show scratches on dinner plates for example. One time, you could see a crack in a piece of pottery in the photograph that you could not see when looking at it.

Thanks for dropping by.
