This item is a wonderful Altwasser Silesia handled and covered oval vegetable bowl. The top and the bottom of this porcelain vegetable bowl are white with gold handles and a two band decoration on the rims of both pieces. One band is 1/8" wide and the other is 1/16" as is the band around the base. The piece measures 12 1/4" across the handles, 7 3/8" wide by 5 1/2" tall with the lid on. The mark on the bottom was used from 1875-1896 and is a falcon on a branch with CT Silesia below it and 6521 over 1 and the lid is marked 6521 over 36. There is some use wear on the handles and two small chips on the top's lower rim, one is about 3/8" and the other is 1/4". Neither chip is visible from above the piece. Please feel free to email me with any questions or to make an offer.
