    One more piece for this area of the board. This was picked up in Poland by my ex. Was the least she could do, seeing how she was coming back with a trunk full of Polish pottery!

    Any ideas, or opinions?

    I think this is a good piece from the RAD - 'Reich Arbeits Dienst'
    or National Labour Service.

    But others with more knowledge about such things will provide
    further remarks................!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    I agree with Steve, it's original. What makes it interesting is the use of the Weimar Eagle on the back and the RAD Swas on the front. The RAD was founded in mid-1934. As far as I know, 1935 was the last year they utilized the Weimar Eagle on most china. Therefore it seems this is an early RAD plate. I have no clue on the RAD unit.

    Take care,
    Jay

    Thanks Horst, and nice Steins! Unfortunately, I have no need for TR stuff. Only have the handful of small items.
