RW Bavaria

Many of us commonly refer to it as 'RW Bavaria,' but the official company name was 'Porzellanmanufaktur Rudolf Wächter.'

Rudolf Wächter was the founder, and he exported many products to the U.S. So you can find RW Barbarian products very easily on eBay in the U.S.

The company was established in the early 20th century and ceased operations in the 1970s.
