Villeroy & Boch "Dresden", Onion Pattern Lazy Susan w/Wood Stand

Here for your consideration is a Villeroy & Boch "Dresden" lazy susan with wood stand. The pieces are decorated with a Chinese-style floral motif known by collectors as the "Onion" pattern. All earthenware pieces are marked: VILLEROY & BOCH "Mercury" back stamp with "DRESDEN", REG. U. S. PAT. OFF, MADE IN GERMANY [black ink stamp, under glaze], c. 1874-1909. The wood stand is not marked, visible shelf wear on the top and bottom, wood is bowing due to shrinkage with no repairs. The individual dishes have crazing, several show minimal staining, one pie dish has a crude corner under-glaze [done during manufacturing] and three pie dishes have chips. SEE PHOTOS FOR DETAILS. I have not been able to identify any other conditions, replacement pieces or repairs. Please feel free to ask questions or for more detailed photos.


Wood Stand 16 3/4" D x 4 1/2" H.

Round Dish 6 13/16" D x 1 1/4" H.

Pie Dish 7 7/16" x 4 1/4" x 1 3/16".


The German firm of Villeroy and Boch was originally started c. 1766 by three brothers Jean-Francois, Dominique and Pierre-Joseph Boch. Jean-Francois became sole proprietor in 1795. White and cream-colored earthenwares were made usually with blue painted or printed Chinese-style landscapes. Plaques were made from 1784. The Boch family merged with the Villeroy family, (which founded the factories at Frauenberg [1760], Wallerfangen [1789] and Schramberg [1820]) in 1836. They went on to establish a works at Mettlach in Germany in 1842.
