R. S. Germany gold-rimmed decorative plate in beautiful fall hues decorated with leaves and nuts. The background is blended shades of olive green, pale creamy beige and vibrant rust. The leaves are multicolored with the nuts just emerging.
This serving plate is 9 3/4" across with cut out handles.
The plate is marked with the Tillowitz green wreath mark with star dating from 1910-1920.
The "RS" is derived from the founder, Reinhold Schlegelmilch, but it was the work of his sons, Arnold and Ehrhard that made the mark famous. With factories in Suhl and Tillowitz, a majority of their production was exported from 1892 until the beginning of World War I. The Suhl factory closed before the end of World War I; the Tillowitz factory remained operational until the beginning of World War II.
The plate is in excellent antique condition with no chips or cracks. The outer rim shows gold loss at several places.
The plate comes from grandparents' home and has always been used for display.
This plate has a definite "autumn" feel to it and would display wonderfully in a cabinet or hung on the wall!
