An antique porcelain bowl that features a deeply scalloped rim. We find floral decoration that is delicate and dainty. There is a hint of turquoise color behind the yellow flowers so the decoration is not lost against the mold design. The flowers are finished with hand enameling.
Although unmarked, we did find this bowl is featured as plate #270 in Mary Frank Gaston's Encyclopedia of R.S. Prussia 4th series on page 93. We would place this just before the turn of the 20th Century based on the Victorian mold design.
Measuring 10" diameter and 2.75" deep we find a line that extends down into one of the leafy areas. This is a separation line that was done during manufacturing as the high gloss glaze covers it. The pricing does reflect the flaw.
