Christopher Marshall ( PM&M ) whilst drawing attention to the errors in the Von Schierholz entry in Roentgen is not actually casting doubt on the attribution of the hash mark to the Von Schierholz factory.Porcelain making in the town of Sitzendorf goes back to 1760, so it is a strong driving force for the town.Their standard mark is usually a crown and S mark - with a small crossed lines device incorporated into the middle of the S.
The actual crossed lines of the Sitzendorfer mark from the 1887 - 1900 are not quite the same as this mark.

Several other marks were used by them, the latest being designed in 1973 after the factory was nationalized and renamed behind the Soviet iron curtain.
