A fine majolica specimen, circa 1900, from the V.B.S. factory. The Schramberg factory operated from 1883 to 1912 under the management of Villeroy and Boch. This piece is hand painted in lovely pastel shades. The maker's mark has been impressed to the rear of the item but not very clearly - however, one can just about read the letters V, B and S. Also stamped with "T" and " 880."
Size : length : 42 cm. ( 16 1/2" ), breadth : 28 cm. ( 11" ) and depth : 4 cm. ( 1 1/2" ).
Condition : excellent.
