PM East German trinket box with the Canadian Coat of Arms on lid
PM East German trinket box with the Canadian Coat of Arms on lid PM East German trinket box with the Canadian Coat of Arms on lid.

After World War II, in October, 1949, the German Democratic Republic was founded. The German Democratic Republic (GDR; Deutsche Demokratische Republik, DDR; commonly known in English as East Germany) was a socialist state created by the Soviet Union in the Soviet Zone of occupied Germany and the Soviet sector of occupied Berlin. East Germany existed from 1949 until 1990, when its re-established states acceded to the adjacent Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany), thus producing the current form of the state of Germany.
The new East German government instructed companies to replace the marks used "Made in Germany" with "Made in GDR" or "Made in German Democratic Republic" and "Made in East Germany". The West German makers began marking their products with "Made in W.-Germany" or "Made in West Germany". In October, 1989, there was the fall of the German Democratic Republic. All the companies began using "Made in Germany" again. Therefore, if you see an item marked "Made in West Germany" or "Made in German Democratic Republic" and "Made in East Germany", it was probably made between October, 1949 and October 1989.

The mark on this piece appears to be that of 'V.E.B. Porzellanwerk Martinroda'
Originally this company was Porzellanfabrik Friedrich Eger & Co. K.G. (1901 until 1972)
This company was founded in the year 1901 by the former printer Friedrich Eger together with his son Herrmann
It then became V.E.B. Porzellanwerk Martinroda (1972 until 1990)In the year 1972 the company (like many others) finally was nationalized and renamed into 'V.E.B. Porzellanwerk Martinroda' and declared part of the 'V.E.B. Zierporzellan Lichte' combinate. In January 1977 normal production was stopped as the facility was taken over by the 'Porzellanwerk Ilmenau'
