Hand painted porcelain is so beautiful no matter if done in a factory, professional decorating studio or a small home-studio environment. The overall quality is what really matters. This lovely 5 piece place setting was the product of a home-studio.
What a wonderful set to display with your other hand painted treasures. The set consists of a 8 1/2" plate, 6" plate, 5 1/8" sauce and cup & saucer. All pieces are stamped "O & EG Royal Austria" which is the Oscar & Edgar Gutherz Porcelain Company from Alt-Kohlaw, Austria, circa 1889 - 1918. The cup & saucer is on a plain blank and the other pieces have a scalloped rim with delicate embossed design. The hand painted motif is soft yellow and rust/orange nasturtium flowers and buds with shaded green leaves against a background of muted pastel blue and pink. All pieces, except the large plate, are artist signed "Langley or B.E.Langley". There are no cracks, chips or repairs. I have another identical 5-piece set in my store on which the colors are slightly darker than this set.
