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 of the piece is what really matters.
This lovely nappie with curled handle, circa 1920, is the product of a home studio. The unmarked china blank is expertly decorated with large yellow/umber tinged roses with shaded pastel green foliage. The background has tints of pastel apricot, blue and umber with gold edge and handle. The nappie measures 7" in length, 4 5/8" across and 1 1/4" in depth. It is artist signed "E.W.Bieg" on the base. There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
