This plaque has it all! This is a beautiful scene with a man and woman taking a causal float down the shaded stream admiring the countryside. The two share the stream with a pair of cows that probably belong to the homestead that sits along the bank in the background. The plaque has a dark brown rimmed background that has a raised relief swirl design on the rim. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
The Franz Anton Mehlem Earthenware Factory operated in Bonn, Germany from 1836-1920. The factory, founded in 1836, was bought by Villeroy and Boch of Mettlach, Germany, in 1921. It closed in 1931. The Mehlem factory is better known by the trade name “Royal Bonn,” which it often included in marks starting in 1890.
