In simplified Chinese, both would be 台, easy peasy. Otherwise, things get complicated. Sometimes 台 is just an alternative form for 臺, which is the case for Taiwan: you can write 臺灣 or 台灣, both are acceptable, although the former is considered more formal. In the case of 台山, that is the correct name already, so you can't write 臺山 because 臺 is not an ...
Yes, they are truly Chinese. From top to bottom： 鹏雅精瓷： “精瓷” is a kind of chinaware, and “鹏雅” is the brand name, I think. 鹏祥：(the words from left to right) I think it is also the brand name of the plate/tea set. 吉：which means “lucky”. I think it is the Chinese character “吉” with a circle around it in the picture. 金顺：in the picture, the words are upside ...

These are all brand names, I suppose. As Chinese, I hate these... If you are interested in chinas, remember that: Thinner Is Better (Some gorgeous chinas will let the light go through). And the best chinas in China are always produced in 景德镇. And notice if you found a bowl with "**朝****年制" on a high price, never buy it. They are forgery.
I'm afraid the name "the wicked witch of Oz" may be confusing. Baum's original story has "The Wicked Witch of the East (in Oz)" and "The Wicked Witch of the West (in Oz)". Oz, or Land of Oz: 奥兹国, 奥茨国、欧茨国、is almost meaningless in Chinese without referencing the common title of the book in Chinese 绿野仙踪 Since the Wicked Witch of the East dies early in the ...
