This wonderful diminutive porcelain bowl bears a pale green satin glaze adorned with hand painted white roses and leaves, signed in gold ink by the artist W. Dieke. The fluted edges of the dish are scalloped and boast four little pierced cartouches, which are also trimmed in gold enamel. The dainty little bowl rests on four little gold-trimmed feet. Measures 3” wide to outside edges x 1 1/4" tall.
Royal Bayreuth mark in blue on underside: Coat of arms showing an armor helmet, two facing lions with shields holding P (Porcelain) T (Tettau) over a banner with Priv. 1794. Royal Bayreuth is above; Bavaria below. (Tetau is the Bavarian town where the Bayreuth Pottery was located. “Priv. 1794” refers to the date when royal privilege was granted for the pottery to produce porcelain.) Mark used 1902 – c. 1919.
Condition is excellent with only some very small rubbed places to outside of bowl and a skip in the gold paint next to one of the cartouches on the rim. Considering its age, this delicate piece is in excellent condition. The painted roses and shape of the dish are both artfully done; highly desirable!
