Victorian china fairings are small porcelain figurines ranging from about three inches (7.5 cm) to about five inches (12.5 cm) in height, and depict a variety of scenes, humorous, political or domestic. The figurine almost always incorporates a base and many fairings have a caption describing the scene or making some point inscribed on that base.

Most fairings were manufactured in Germany by Conta and Boehme. This company developed a mass production method that no other company could match, thereby achieving an advantage over other firms.

Dating Conta & Boehme Fairings:

  • Earlier Fairings sometimes had the 4 digit numbers incised on the base, these will usually be found without Conta & Boehme's shield mark. The shield/dagger mark was not used before 1850.
  • Fairings from 1850-1860 were generally larger than those that followed.
  • From the 1890s the shield mark may be printed or the "Made in Germany" mark could be present, but just to confuse you even further, no 4 digit impressed or incised numbers may be present. It is generally assumed that these are fakes but according to my research this is not necessarily the case.
  • circa 1890 the shield was printed on base.
  • after 1890 the colours of Conta & Boehme Fairings became brighter and much more colourful.
  • 1891 made in Germany' was used as all ceramics had to indicate country of manufacture
  • 1914 fairings not being made
  • A bicycle indicates that a piece is later than 1867. Some fairings have themes based on popular music or prints, these may be dated easily.
