Excerpted Online Research Information About the “Favorite Bavaria” Mark (attributed to justanswer.com): “...This mark was used by C. Hutschenreuther in Bavaria, Germany. It was used as a special export mark for the US market (note the American spelling of the word 'favorite' which is different to the traditional spelling of the British and British domiciles - 'favourite'). The US based importers of these wares were the Burley & Tyrrell Co of Chicago, Illinois. It is registered that a decorating studio by the name of Jacob H. Stouffer from Adeline, Illinois was taking whiteware with a "Favorite China" backstamp and decorating it in the US. His studio, based in Chicago was in operation from 1905 - 1952. Stouffer was known to employ some of the best decorators and artisans of the time.”
