August 23, 2016 I enjoyed your website which I found this morning after searching Google trying to find out about the set of Schumann china I just inherited from my father.  He was a medic
 in WWII, in the Battle of the Bulge and the Ardennes with the 87th Division of Patton's army.  He purchased and sent home to his new bride a full set of this china which
became her most treasured possession.  As a result, we were never allowed to use it, so it sat in her china cabinet until my Dad's death at 98 this year. 
Your website is so informative and interesting.  I must compliment you on the exhaustive work.

D.R., Great Barringtron, MA

S.R., Santa Fe, Texas, USA

February 18, 2010 I have been researching your site and have learned much about Schumann china. Your website is wonderful and so informative.  I introduced it to my mother who is 87.  I took her upstairs to view your website, as I knew she would love exploring it and seeing what you have.  There she sat, with her pen in hand, writing down instructions on how to access your site.  She was thrilled...together we sat and checked it out.  She has many lovely things herself, so got a real kick out of exploring and seeing what similar things you have.  It was such a special time. 

Of course, this is what makes the internet so wonderful...finding sites like yours, with so many great things to look at.  We both commented on how much my grandmother would have loved the internet...she would have loved Efineantiques! My grandmother was an apple rancher up in the interior of British Columbia, Canada.  During WW II, people traded their treasures with my grandparents for boxes of apples!!  Thank you for helping me identify the Schumann Empress U. S. Zone teacups that I found among my Grandmother's treasures.

What will be so great is knowing Mom can explore your site during times when she feels like walking involved...just the click of the mouse and she can spend time antiquing!

This is so special.  Thank you.

We received our teapot and sugar and creamer (Schumann Empress) this afternoon.  They arrived safely and are beautiful.  The gift was for my wife's birthday present.  She was born March 4, 1945.  We noted that the teapot could possibly have been made in 1945, so she plans to tell the story her way and say the teapot is as old as she is.  My response was that she is holding up just as well as the teapot, and the teapot is perfect!  Thanks for all your help and for packing our order so carefully.  We look forward to another occasion so that I can add to her collection.

I am a 19-year-old college student at Purdue University in Indiana and I love antique shopping.  Today, I purchased a small oval-shaped dish.  I noticed the stamp on the back was Schumann Bavaria Germany US Zone.  I decided to look it up on the internet because I thought the US Zone was from the start of the Cold War.  I am so happy you have so many details on your site!  I compared the design, the stamp, and the crown and learned that it is from 1945-1949!  Thank you so much for having all this knowledge about Schumann!  Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you for putting together such a wonderful website and for sharing so much information!  It's a beautiful site and an excellent reference source.

We bought several pieces of hand painted china/porcelain last weekend at an estate sale.  I could not find the marks in several of the reference books I have, so decided to search the internet.  I came upon your site and found every single mark I was looking for, as well as many I've had to spend time looking up in the past.  The information you provide is concise, the photos with the enlargement feature is wonderful, and I especially appreciate the reference sources that you cite.

We've been collecting for ourselves for many years, did antique shows for a number of years, and now I'm selling off some of the surplus items on ebay.  I tell you this because I want you to know that with this past experience, I have encountered many dealers, shop owners, etc., who will not share any information at all with anyone.  Your willingness to educate and inform, as well as sell some fantastic pieces, is refreshing and very much appreciated.  You are a true professional in every sense of the word!  So, thank you so much for putting so much time and effort into making a valuable reference source from which many can learn!!

A.H., Detroit, Michigan, USA

January 15, 2007

I found your website last year while surfing the internet for fine porcelain antiques.  I have returned several times to admire some of the items you have for sale.  Several days ago, I had some spare time and happened to click on the "Schumann China" information.  To my great surprise, it helped to answer a question that has plagued me since Hurricane Katrina destroyed my mother's home in 2005.  Who was the manufacturer of Mother's china and exactly what was the pattern name?

My father gave the china to her as an anniversary present in the late 1950's or early 1960's.  With that china, Mother taught me table manners as well as an appreciation for family gatherings and entertaining guests.  As I grew older, I occasionally thought I really must track down the manufacturer and pattern name, but I always thought I had time to do it.  Hurricane Katrina ended that hope when it destroyed her home.  In the debris of her home, I found only one small piece of one plate.  In the months since Katrina, as people have asked me what I missed the most of all the furnishings in my own home, I have told them I regretted nothing in the loss of my own home as much as the loss of my mother's china from her house.

I have trolled many china websites trying to identify her china and had just about given up until I clicked on the Schumann link on your website and finally began to head in the right direction.  I have now been able to find a number of replacement pieces which my brother and I plan to give Mother for her birthday.

I just want to thank you for your wonderful and informative Schumann information.  I know it must have taken much research and patience to pull it together.  Without it, I don't know how many years and time, if ever, it would have taken me to identify our lost family treasure.  Thank you so much!  And, I will continue to watch your website.

G'day from down under -- just letting you know that we received the figurine today.  It arrived intact and safe.  Actually, for it to have any damage, it would had to have gone via an earthquake, as you had packed exceptionally well.  Thank you for your attention to the handling of it.  My wife is thrilled with the figurine and has the problem of where to move it to get the best view of it.  Thank you again.  We are very happy with the purchase and your care in packaging such a delicate item.

I can't begin to thank you enough for your help and so quickly!!  My family will be thrilled!!  We treasured the vases anyway, but knowing how old and remarkable they are makes them all the more wonderful.  (Click here for this fascinating yet tragic story.)

Got my pretty teacup today.  Looks downright glam on my desk here at work; lots of compliments on my (our) taste.  Flawlessly wrapped, as usual, so it arrived in perfect condition.  Of course, I will continue to peruse your site for other items I can't live without.  As always, I appreciate the layaway opportunity.

The luncheon and bread and butter plates arrived in perfect condition, as did the exquisite bread holder and the cups and saucer.  I am so delighted with this particular purchase because your system of ordering was quick and simple.  I was also impressed with the very low cost of shipping and handling charged, especially when I opened the initial box and saw the meticulous care used in packing the fragile pieces.  The fact that the order was delivered within seven days of the order was great!!

I want to tell you how very valuable your site has been to me.  I've been on a learning path since September of 2003 and found your site in December with my first piece of Schumann.  The information you provide is phenomenal -- at first, the marks, and then as I read through, the dates and information you provide about each piece.  I want to thank you so much.  Thanks tons!!!

I received the beautiful Pink Lustre cup and saucer today.  It is gorgeous!!!  I want to mention that your wonderful packing saved the cup and saucer from arriving in small pieces.  The box was badly damaged and one side was fully dented.  Thank you so much for your follow-up on this matter.  I truly appreciate your asking permission to use my comments.  You are professional and operate a professional business.  I  will continue to check Efineantiques for new pieces.
