This is a very rare to find RS Prussia invalid feeder. An early one, it is hand painted, circa 1884. I have only ever come across one or two RS Prussia invalid feeders ever, and this one is by far the prettiest I've ever seen. It stands 2 1/2 inches tall and measures 4 1/4 inches wide, or from spout to back of piece, since the handle is on the side. While it is unmarked, we guarantee this piece to absolutely be RS Prussia circa 1888. This was the time that the RS Prussia factory used the scarce "arrow mark". Invalid feeders, however, were never marked. The decor on this piece is documented by Lee Marple's in his book, RS Prussia The Formative Years. Plate 90 on page 31 shows this decor, and Marple refers to it as "cookie cutter" flowers and pink background. This piece is in excellent condition with some minor wear to the distinctive gold highlights along the spout,handle, and most of the gold worn along the rim. For the collector of invalid feeders, or rare RS Prussia objects, this is a real find.
