value of each piece of Gerold Porzellan depends on its availability, size, mark, and model
number incised on the underside of the item.
The mark indicates whether or not it was produced pre- or post-1949. See
the marks page. Any item
with the pre-1949 mark is valued higher. With the exception of the Design Florist
vases, the items should also
have at least a four-digit number incised on the bottom of the base
signifying the model number. I believe the
lower the number, the older it is. In the case of pairs, sets, or
different sizes of the same item, you will see a slash (/) plus
either a number or letter of the alphabet. In many case the
males ended with a /A to signify it has an accompanying female /B.
Another example would be a /1 or a /2, /3, /4, etc. to indicate the
exact same mold was made in different sizes.
The value can also depend on what the item is.
For example, ashtrays, birds, trinket boxes, and vases are the most common items
and do not bring as much as figurines, steins, and many household
The model numbers range
model #3000 Series
model #5000 Series
model #6000 Series
model #8000 Series
model #9000 Series
If a figurine has
multiple figures on a base the value also increases.
