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 demi-tasse spoon holder, circa early 1900's, is the product of a home studio. The white china blank is expertly decorated on both side and ends with clusters of variegated white and medium blue forget-me-not blossoms nestled among shade green leaves, brown stems and sprigs of delicate pink flowers. The smooth rim is decorated with gold. The spoon holder measures 3 1/2" in length, 1 3/8" in width and 2 3/8" in height on the ends. It is stamped 'IT UNO Favorite Bavaria', the export mark used by C Hutschenreuther Co. Bavaria for the US wholesaler Burley & Tyrrell Co., Chicago, IL, circa 1912. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Beautiful colors and craftsmanship.
