This gorgeous set of dessert dishes was made by the Tirschenreuth Porcelain Factory, a German company that operated from 1838 to 1927.
Made of the finest European porcelain and decorated with wild roses in pastel shades and Lots of Beautiful Gold trim around the edges. The floral design started as a transfer for consistency between the pieces and was outlined and painted in by hand at the factory. The thick gold was also hand applied.
The set consists of the master bowl and 5 smaller serving bowls. The pieces are small and probably intended for nuts or mints. The leaf-shaped master bowl measures about 7 3/8" by 5 3/4" and the small bowls are about 4" across the widest part. The standard sized business card shown in the last picture helps to illustrate the size.
Marked with PT, crown over shield and laurel leaves, Bavaria and two crossed banners reading; "Hand Painted, Bavarian China". The large bowl has a handpainted "2664" and "40" and the smaller bowls show just the "40" which is probably the pattern number.
All are in excellent condition with a small black firing dot on one dish and light stacking wear to the gold trim on the high points of the porcelain.
