This is a lovely multi-purpose china serving dish, circa 1900-1920. The contoured shape, flowing lines and beautiful curved handle is enhanced with a colorful floral transfer in the base of the bowl and wide gold border on the outer rim and gold highlights on the handle. The floral transfer is soft shaded pink and white flowers & buds against green foliage. The mark German, an eagle over CT. The bowl measures about 8" x 10" and is 2" deep. There are no cracks, chips, nicks or repairs on this item. Wonderful for special occasions or that decorative touch.
