Founded in 1794 in Tettau, Bavaria, the Royal Bayreuth firm is well known for it's superior quality porcelain items.
This scarce figural "Pansy" serving bowl is in the shape of a large pansy blossom. Realistic shades of vivid rose, pink, yellow, white and black create a stunning image. The figural pansy bowl measures 9" across and 3" in height. It is stamped in blue with one Lion, "T", "1794" and "Royal Bayreuth - Bavaria". Note that Bavaria is printed upside-down. This mark was used from 1885 until 1902 when it was replaced with marks showing two Lions. There are no cracks, chips, wear or repairs; near mint with gorgeous colors.
