Have a smashing New Year!

Wishing you a joyous 2022!
May it bring you happiness, love, and empowerment

This wonderful plate by ‘Victoria’ (Czechoslovakia) is likely from the 1930s. It has pride of place on my kitchen dresser.

‘Victoria’ Schmidt & Company in Stara Role, Czechoslovakia was founded in 1883 by Lazarus and Rosenfeld Ltd. however, the company was sold within two years to Franz Schmidt,and renamed Porzellanfabrik Victoria Schmidt & Co. In 1927 it was transformed into a stock company Porzellanfabrik Victoria AG.

Schmidt & Company ceased to exist in 1945, when they merged with the Altrohlau Porcelain Factories and the EPIAG factories to become known as Starorolský Porcelán.


    1. No chance! though I did contemplate your wonderful chimney sweep charm … but I‘ll hang on to the plate for a while. Have a fantabulous 2022 🥂☀️
