This is a very nice master bowl that would be perfect to serve a big salad in! The center of the bowl has been factory decorated with pink wild roses, green and blue leaves, brown stems and gray foliage. The bowl has fluted shell like shaped sides and is finished off with a scalloped gold painted rim. There are no chips; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.

The Mehlem factory is better known by the trade name "Royal Bonn," which it often included in marks starting in 1890.
