Beautifully shown is this Studio decorated vintage Bavaria hand painted Floral & Geometric Gold Décor fancy Bowl by the listed and well known J.H.Stouffer Studio of Chicago.
The J.H. Stouffer Co. Art Studio of Chicago was one of the top China Decorating Studios in the country during the early 1900's producing a variety of high quality china artwork known across America. The large decorating Studio competed with the best decorating studios of the era including Pickard, Brauer, Donath, and Osborne, as well as many other very fine smaller studios. Stouffer operated from 1905 to 1952. An extensive bio on the company, covering 21 pages, can be found in Alan Reed's Pickard Collectors Book. Included are many many examples of the beautiful artwork created by the Studio during the early years of the 1900's.
This beautiful and fancy Bowl was hand decorated by the Stouffer Artist, "Ethel Honey"....sometime between 1906-1914, per the Stouffer Mark # 4 used in this era. The beautiful Bowl measures 6-1/4" wide & 3-1/2" wide. The Bowl has been lavishly decorated with raised gilded gold flowers & a fancy geometric pattern encircling the entire bowl. Heavy raised gold and blue beading has been added through the décor adding to the Bowl's beauty. Two large gilded hold handle, looped shape, rise from the sides of the Bowl and looping over.
The beautiful floral hand painted Bowl is in excellent condition and without chips or cracks. The Bowl has been a shelf piece for the last 100 years....with all the gold nearly pristine.
The Floral Bowl displays an early "Bavaria" mark, as well as the Stouffer Mark # 4 Studio mark. Ethel "Honey" has prominently signed the Bowl by the handle.
The outstanding Floral & Gold Bowl is perfect for a vanity, bath, dresser, or cocktail table.
