Hand painted porcelain is beautiful no matter if executed in a factory decorating department, professional studio or small home studio environment. The end result is what really matters.
This wonderful porcelain dessert set, circa 1910-1920, was decorated in a home studio and each piece is signed by the artist "Freiberg". The motif consists of single and pairs of delicate pink/red rose blossoms nestled among tiny olive, taupe and blue-gray foliage, surrounding the outer border of the plates. A pastel yellow band outlined in gold serves as background for some of the floral decoration. The serving plate, with cut-in handles, measures 9 3/4" across and 10 1/2" handle-to-handle. The outside edge is smooth and the blank is unmarked as to maker. The five individual dessert plates measure 7 1/2" across. They have a gently scalloped edge and are stamped "UNO Favorite Bavaria". There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
