the Gerold Porzellan Collector's Website.
THE MESS...I'M MAKING UPDATES TO THE WEBSITE....MORE PHOTOS,
INFO, & MODEL #'S!
This website is a source
of information dedicated
to the history, research and preservation of Gerold
Porzellan from Tettau, Bavaria, Germany. Gerold porcelain
was produced between the years of 1904 and 1997. Germany has
long been renowned for having some of the finest porcelain
artists and manufacturing facilities in the world. Gerold is
no exception and some items are rare.
you've never heard of Gerold porcelain before, you are not alone.
The Gerold Porzellan Company is one of the lesser known Bavarian
producers of fine porcelain, but gaining popularity due in part
to this website. Prior to 1999, there were no websites on
the World Wide Web to provide any information about these collectible
porcelain figurines and household items, which the company produced
from 1904 to 1997. The Photo Gallery includes thousands of photos, just
a fraction of what the company produced. What I
have managed to find out about the company can be found on the
Information about the Gerold Porzellan marks can be found on
Please enjoy viewing the various photo galleries of
porcelain created by the Gerold Porzellan using the
navigation menu on the left.
For those of you who are visiting
for the first time, let me explain that this website is
for informational purposes only. Please see
The Photo Gallery contains pictures donated by people from all
over the world of their Gerold Porzellan collectibles, thereby
providing a means for others to identify their own Gerold items.
This website is a photo gallery of thousands of photos
which I have compiled over the course of 14 years. I
do not sell the items you see in the photos. I do not
sell replacement parts. This is my hobby. I am in no way affiliated
with the Gerold Porzellan Company, in fact, the company no longer

ASK MY PERMISSION
before quoting any information in your item description.
Want to know
the value of your Gerold Porzellan item?
number one question I'm always asked is what an item is
worth. In the beginning I was nervous about quoting a
price because I am not a licensed appraiser. (again,
see my Disclaimer) However, the
same question continued to be asked time after time.
have created a
Price Guide with all
of the current known values, guesstimates, and what I feel
an item is worth after 40+ years of collecting. I am making
the Price Guide available for a
minimal fee of $14.99 to help defray the cost of web
hosting. This is the 5th year for the Price Guide and
I have just updated it with even more photos, listing dozens
of missing model numbers. For more information on how to
obtain this list, go to the
Price Guide page.
need the value for 1 or 2 Gerold items? Now instead of
purchasing the Value Guide in it's entirety, you can just
purchase the information for just one gallery!
Submit A Photo
If you have photos that you
would like to submit to the gallery please go to the
page for more information. Not all photos are accepted
especially if others of an identical item exist. Be sure
to include your full name so I can cite you as the owner of
the photo. Also include any markings, incised model numbers,
artist name, etc, that are on the item.
If you have information
or historical knowledge of the Gerold Porzellan Company or its'
marks, I want to hear from you!
I would like to learn as much as I can about the company and
the products they produced. Please
contact me and
I will reply to you as soon as possible. I am
especially very interested in the Gerold catalogs,
brochures, flyers...any documentation, as these provide so
much information about the products including the pictures.
Missing Model Numbers & Dimensions
way to help grow this resource is to provide missing model numbers.
Throughout the site you
will notice many figurines missing their model numbers
mainly because they were either too difficult to read or,
rarely, they simply did not have one inscribed on the bottom of the item. If
you have a Gerold Porzellan item with a legible model number
and I don't have it listed, please
Some model numbers
are very difficult to see, but with a flashlight, or by looking
at it in bright sunlight may help to see it more clearer.
Also, during that time period in Germany their 1's and 7's looked
very similar except the numeral 7 had a cross-hatch through
I'm also interested in
the dimensions of items that have none listed.
