Hi there:
I would think (now) that this is West German Pottery (WGP) also and sort of similar to mine with the gold trim.  I myself did not know that WGP had gold trim either.  See post here:  http://www.yobunny.com/pottery/index.php?topic=10916.0

I think the 535 is the style number, and the 12 is the height....whether inches or centimeters.

I am still learning but looks similar to mine with the gold trim.

Every flower that has ever bloomed, had to go through a whole lot of DIRT FIRST......:flowers2:

I have had several pieces like these in the past, they are late '50s-early '60s, and the maker is possibly Carstens Tonnieshof, who used a lot of golds and autumn tones with that high-fired glaze.
If you always expect the worst you'll never be disappointed.
