Von Schierholz porcelain dates from around 1817. Since its inception, rather than focus on dinnerware, the Von Schierholz factory has produced some of the greatest examples of porcelain vases, compotes, and figural items yet in the storied history of Meissen, Dresden, and other producers in what is now Germany. The Von Schierholz porcelain factory is still located in its original town of Plaue in Thuringia.
This beautiful round bowl is decorated with a Dresden flower motif. It could be used for many serving purposes including candy or nuts. The fully reticulated sides are gently scalloped at the rim. The spring floral motif is spectacular with the center ablaze with roses, anemones and other floral in striking shades of rose, purple, blue, orange, yellow and green. The lattice-work reticulated sides is divided into four panels of cut-out single flowers and leaves in a multitude of colors. Separating the panels are four cartouches, each with a different bouquet of flowers. The bowl measures 8 3/4" across and 1 7/8" in depth.Marked in script "Germany" and stamped with a crown over a shield containing three oak leaves which is the Von Schierholz stamp, circa 1907-1927.
