Set of 8 fine Art Nouveau Austrian porcelain butter pats with a floral pink roses design and gilded beaded border are being offered for your consideration. These beautiful hard to find Art Nouveau era beauties were produced in Altrohlau, Austria by Oscar & Edgar Gutherz; their mark dates their production to between 1899 and 1918. They have an ornate form with a scalloped edge and raised beading which has been hand painted with gold. The center transfer decorations are variations of the same pink roses / flower with green foliage. There are no chips or cracks and the glaze is bright and shiny on all 8 listed for sale only some light scuffing at the high points from stacking and the occasional tiny pin head size nibble on the foot ring where the little plate actually rests on the table ( these are actually visible on close inspection in the title picture ) are notable. Each pat measures 3 1/2 inches in diameter and is marked, O E & G with an ivy wreath and Royal inside the wreath with Austria beneath it, in addition beneath the glaze in green is a hand written number 3 on each pat. There are the era typical production glaze skips, specs of iron, glaze dust bumps and small decal / decoration skips; most if not all of these can also be see in the photos and are not considered flaws of any kind but affirmations of their age and authenticity. A fabulous find and a wonderful addition to any fine dinnerware collection for display or use at your next gourmet dinner party! Try using them for nuts, after dinner mints or chocolates too! (A173)
