An antique porcelain sugar bowl featuring a heavy gold pattern of leaves and flowers. The scalloped rim flares out from the body in Victorian fashion. This same mold type was used for a larger biscuit barrel from this factory. The pattern number used by the factory is #2105. You'll notice that the colors under the gold stenciling are dark pinks and browns. This area is hand painted with the gold applied on top.
We find this hallmarked with the blue double circle from Marx & Gutherz in Austria that tells us this was produced c. 1898. This factory employed five artists to decorate. Although unsigned, we are fairly certain this was factory decorated.
Measuring 5 inches high to top of lid we find this in wonderful antique condition. You'll see a bit of gold wear on at the rim and handle of the lid. There is no damage to porcelain.
