The "RS" is derived from its 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.

During the 1800's and through the first quarter of the 1900's the lady of the house used ornamental hat pins to help secure her large, fashionable hats. A special holder was necessary to hold and organize these pins on her vanity or dressing table, thus the hat pin holder was created.

This lovely holder, circa 1900-1920, is decorated with white/tan/crimson orchid blossoms, against a background of off-white to steel gray. The unique hexagonal shape tapers out at the top creating a scalloped and pointed edge trimmed with gold gilt; the base also tapers out and forms six delicate feet. There are embossed designs near the top and base of the holder. The piece measures 4 1/2" in height and has no cracks, chips or repairs; wear on the gold edge. Wonderful hat pin holder.
