Bohemian China

Where can I find information on a piece of china with the mark CARLSBAD AUSTRIA OSM printed on...?

...the bottom.
it is a white center bowl with flowers and a gold edge. I believe it is china or somthing similar

Your mark actually reads "C.S.M." -- not "O.S.M." (slightly faded?)

It was likely produced (circa 1889-1895) at the Bohemian earthenware & porcelain factory owned by Camill Schwalb (C.S.M. CARLSBAD AUSTRIA).

factory: Becher & Stark - Schwalb Brothers - Camill Schwalb -
Zettliz Kaolin Works Department Porcelain Factory Merkelsgrun Marks

Founded in 1868 by Alfred & Malvine Becher, Merklin, Czech Republic (Merkelsgrun, Bohemia, Austria). The factory produced earthenware and porcelain.

Timeline:
1871 Fanni Becher and Anna Stark owned the factory; it was called Becher & Stark.
1881 Karlsbad Savings Bank ran the factory.
1882 it was run by the Schwalb Brothers and called Brothers Schwalb. Benedikt & Friedman were the USA importers. The Schwalb Brothers also owned a factory in Rybare (Fischern) that suffered fire damage and closed in 1883.
1889 Camill Schwalb was the owner. George Borgfeldt was the importer for the USA and Canada.
1895 the factory was called Karlsbad Kaolin Industry Co. The factory began producing technical porcelain besides household porcelain. In
1912 the factory merged with Zettliz Kaolin Works Department Porcelain Factory Merkelsgrun. Subsequently it moved away from household porcelain and began to also produce laboratory porcelain, and other industrial items.
