It consists of the one-word inscription "GEISLINGEN" of 6.6-6.7 mm length, made by a "sans serif" font and put in a rectangular frame.

In this communication, I am proposing a new scheme of four-group division of these "unofficial" marks.It consists of a "fancy" three-letter WMF inscription, put in an oval. Such mark contains again a three-letter WMF inscription with dots or without (preferentially), but contrary to previous mark made with a "serif" font and put in a rectangular frame.The peculiarity of this mark is a broken "F" letter in the WMF inscription. The length of the three-letter WMF inscription varies in the range 4.7-6.0 mm. A full mark for WMF hollow ware items, exported to the UK (and/or to the US), contains some new secondary marks.Older inscriptions are made with a "serif" font and put in a cartouche. The size of the "O" rhombus is between 1.5 mm x 2.6 mm and 1.9 mm x 2.9 mm.The length of WMFM, WMFN and WMFB inscriptions varies in the range 3.2-5.6 mm. The double-letter inscription "gg" is an abbreviation of the German expression "ganz vergoldet", which means "entirely gilded".
