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.

This fabulous lemonade pitcher, circa 1900-1920, is decorated with large white/peach carnation blossoms surrounding the pitcher, against a background of shaded greens, muted olive and tans. Long, gold, stylized leaves edged and veined with black add the finishing touch of elegance. The pitcher measures 6 1/4" in height, 7" across and 8 1/2" from spout-to-handle. The pitcher is stamped with the blue "R.S. Germany" mark; "Reinhold Schlegelmilch - Tillowitz - Germany" in red and 'Handpainted" in gold, which refers to the gold ornamentation as the floral decoration is a transfer. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. A beautiful piece of porcelain.
