Here is a beautiful large porcelain celery dish decorated and signed by a fine artist with an inviting nature scene. Lovely and serene, a hand painted pond lined with birch trees narrows toward a faraway mountain range. The colors in the water and sky are of sunset or sunrise. This lovely scene is set off by a cream-colored border edged with gold enamel. The dish is 14" long x 4" wide, tapering to incised gilded handles at each end. Signed by artist, MBH, 1925 on the back. Mark, known as RS Germany, a star over R S (for Rheinhold Schlegelmilch) is stamped on bottom of dish in green inside a wreath, over Germany (Kovels 75D). The mark is blurred, but perfectly legible. The underside rim is glazed in a pale lilac luster, echoing the pastel colors in the scene. The unglazed bottom is a bit smudged; otherwise this remarkable example of the art of porcelain painting is in perfect condition.
