    The made in Germany stamps were added to allow them to be sold abroad, but mainly to the USA because of the legislation outlined below.

    "It was William McKinley (the 25th president of the USA) who introduced the highly protectionist McKinley Tariff Act of 1890 - this imposed tariffs on many imports (including pottery) in order to make it easier for the American manufacturers to sell their products. It was a requirement of this Act that all such imports carried the name of the country of manufacture.
    This provided well-known marks such as "Bavaria," "England," "Nippon," - indicating the country of manufacture.
    In 1921 the Act was amended to require the phrase "Made in" preceding the country of origin."

    This was copied from the site linked below.
