Joseph S.M Meier ("J.J. Meyer") was born in Danzig, Germany (now Gdancz, Poland) in 1796.
Made by the Koenigliche Porzellanmanufaktur, King Frederick II of Prussia's Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin, from the 18th century. In accordance with a 1769 edict, all Jews wishing to receive permits of any kind of business activity, including marriage and death certicates, were required to purchase a certain amount of this (then) poorly made and overpriced porcelain, which was called "Judenporzellan."
