We are pleased to offer a rare piece of Rosenthal porcelain. This is a tea caddy in the Tilly pattern, circa 1898-1906. The caddy is white with hand painted white, pale yellow and lavender flowers and garlands and pale green fern decoration.
The tea caddy measures approximately 5" in height with the lid in place. It has a flared and footed base and vertical impressions with simple white-on-white embellishments all around. The lid also has impressions and is slightly mounded in the center. The opening measures approximately 1-3/4" in diameter. The flared base measures approximately 3-3/4" in diameter at the widest points.
This beautiful piece is signed with the Rosenthal crossed swords in dark green. The pattern name, "TILLY" is also marked in the same dark green. There is also a mark: "GERMANY" in brown.
This fine collectible is in very good to excellent condition!
