Offered for purchase is a beautiful Rosenthal Bavaria Violet Motif Creamer & Sugar Set (Signed "Burch"/c.1903-1930). The design for this set is by Edith Alma Ross and may be found in the November 1903 issue of Keramic Studio Magazine. Keramic Studio Magazine was a monthly publication for the amateur porcelain/china decorator which provided designs, detailed instructions on porcelain/china decorating, as well as articles and photographs of competitions and displays between various china decorating studios and clubs. The magazine was first published in May 1899 and continued into the late-1920’s. We can provide photocopies of the page from the publication with the design of this item with your purchase if specifically requested.
