The unusual design on this bowl is actually thistles. It has a green and gold border design. It has molded bow handles. It is marked on the back "Bavaria crown over R. C. in crossed swords". This stands for Philip Rosenthal & Co. from the time period of 1891-1906. Carmen is the name of the shape not the pattern. This bowl is just over 11-1/4" wide with the handles x 8" deep x 1-3/4" tall.
This bowl was used. Picture #7 shows a split in the decoration that was done during the application process. Picture #8 shows a pre-decorated chip at the bottom of the gold border. There are a couple of scuffs and scratches.
