The "RS" is derived from its founder, Reinhold Schlegelmilch, but it was the work of his sons, Arnold and Ehrhard that made the mark famous. With factories in Suhl and Tillowitz the majority of their production was exported from 1892 until the beginning of WWI. This beautiful syrup pitcher or small tea pot with lid and under-plate, circa 1910, is decorated with white lilies and lily-of-the-valley flowers with green leaves against background of pastel green shading. The items are highlighted with gold trim on rims, handle and lid. The under-plate is 5 1/2" across and the pot is 3 1/2" tall and 5" from spout to handle. Both pieces are marked R.S.Silesia in blue and hand-painted, which I believe refers to the hand applied gold trim. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; a small dark spot on the under-plate which happened during manufacturing.
