Here is a wonderful lobed dish created by the Nymphenburg factory in Munich, which started in the 18th century and is still in operation today. This dish is unmarked but it is a Nymphenburg shape and the decoration is characteristic of early pieces. It’s probably a stand for a perfume holder or a potpourri. The Bauml Collection book shows no example of this shape, but I guarantee it as Nymphenburg and as 18th century. If the buyer wishes, I can touch up the missing areas of the puce line that surrounds the flowers—the unhappy result of some zealous cleaning and the only sign of wear. There is no damage of any kind. The dish is almost seven inches across at its widest. Quite rare and unusual.
