This amazing hand painted Art Nouveau Desktop Stationery Set by Fraureuth is a very rare find. It consists of 5 pieces including an Ink Well, a Tray for pens, an Ink Dryer, a Candle Holder & a Matchbox Holder. The Fraureuth porcelain features stunning Art Nouveau Designs and Swirls. All five pieces were handpainted by an Artist (Monogram: HS) and feature Gilt details. They show a beautiful under water scene with lots of fish and water plants. Each piece features the Artist Monogram and the Inkwell - as the center piece - features the Fraureuth Hallmark. Some of the pieces are also dated to 1907. This is a very rare find.
The Porcelain factory Fraureuth Joint-stock company (German: Pozellanfabrik Fraureuth AG) in Fraureuth was one of the biggest and on high standard porcelain factories oft the German Reich.
Condition: Overall in good condition. The Candle Holder as a small part missing, the handle of the ink dryer was glued on in former times, the matchholder has a barely noticeable crack on the inside of the handle & the inkwell has a very tiny chip. Some general wear on the Gilt Decor, but overall looking very pretty. (PLEASE SEE PICTURES)
