A unique artist signed and dated 1918 set of 5 RS Germany plates....each 6 " plate is in lexcellent condition and bears both the rs germany mark and the artist name and date 1918.
Each is clearly reminiscent of the Pickard influence which was so prevalent at that time. The heavy hand painted gold borders are outlined in black and clusters of hand painted pink floral bouquets are set against lush green shadowed foliage....layered between the gold border is the most delicate mother of pearl luster rainbow flaze....this is the unique feature that caught my eye along with the beautiful gold trimmed detailing....
the porcelain is of the lightest most delicate translucent quality....for nearing the 100 year mark these plates have been well treasured...
This is an original antique hardpaste european porcelain from the Tillowitz region in upper germany it is made of the same ingredients and methodolgy as that of Limoges.... these plates were created by the Reinhold Schlegelmilch factory.....Erdmann Sclegelmilch started a factory in 1861 and began the production of R.S Prussia hardpaste porcelain, Reinhold began his factory in 1869 and by 1910 with the emergence of his R.S Germany mark began a concentration in handpainted tablewares. He also began exporting these exceptional quality blanks for the American China Painting market...Pickard also imported and used many of the R.S Germany line due to the very high standards and quality he found in them....his artists painted many of these pieces....and of those he marked with the Pickard markings his is the most often found on the R.S Germany line..
The U.S thought so much of the R.S Germany line that many high end department stores had special lines/patterns created just for them ...by 1910, his son was using the all-green "RS Germany" mark.....Pieces bearing the "RS Prussia" or the "RS Germany" mark can be found among the most distinguished collections. .... ...the pieces produced at the Tillowitz factory bearing the "RS Germany" mark throughout the years tended to simpler molds and more subtle decoration
