The Schumann factory was established by Carl Schumann in Arzberg, Bavaria, Germany in 1881 and continued in business until 1994.
This beautiful pedestal tea cake stand is the Chateau Dresden pattern. It could be used for many serving purposes. It is composed of two separate parts which are bolted together. The spring floral motif is spectacular with the center ablaze with lilies, anemones and other floral in striking shades of rose, purple, blue, orange, yellow and green. The lattice-work reticulated border is covered with smaller single flowers in a multitude of colors. The base is decorated in the same lovely pattern as the top. The mark - Image 2-12, is "Dresden", Lion within a shield, "Schumann - Bavaria" in dark blue. This mark was used between 1918 - 1929. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; seldom used, if ever. Beautiful and scarce.
