A vintage porcelain portrait bowl that features an old mill scene in the center. This is surrounded by a putty colored finish around the rim area that is enhanced by black outlining. The mold features teardrop cutout handles on both sides. This is a beautiful item and this particular Mill Scene is unusual as it was not used very often.
This item is unmarked but definitely R.S. Prussia. Please reference Mary Gaston's 'Encyclopedia of R.S. Prussia; 4th Series', page 74, Plate #206. You'll see this same Mill Scene on two different bowls. This particular scene was used on items with the R.S. Germany mark.
Measuring 7.5 inches handle to handle and 6 7/8 inches wide and is in wonderful vintage condition without any damage.
