Lovely antique porcelain bowl in what you collectors love to obtain in the Prussia, Bavaria, West Germany style of handpainted bowls.
This is a beautiful antique Rosenthal Bavaria bowl with such distinctive coloring and restrained shape that - even tho' it is a floral - it seems almost masculine! Use the Zoom feature to have a closer look at the lovely detail of creamy blossoms on green and brown foliage...so handsome and yet graceful! The background colors graduate from cream to brown. The rim is embellished in gold. The creamy white snowball flowers add its simplicity with the green leaf pattern.
Marked on the back: with x mark, crown BAVARIA. From Kovels Dictionary of Marks on page 83 was produced by: PHILIP ROSENTHAL & CO. AG/ROSENTHAL PORCELAIN AG. Kronach, bavaria, Germany (W. Germany)
The backmark shown is the one used during the period 1898-1906, but the look appears to be from the turn of the century.
It is hand-painted, but there is no signature. Of course, there is a lovely design molded into the porcelain itself, but there is no indication on the backmark of just which pattern it is.
Measures It is 10 1/2 inches in diameter by 3 inches high.
This beautiful bowl is in good vintage condition with no chips, cracks, or crazing. There is the expected amount of wear to some of the paint - especially on the raised surfaces - and on the gold.
