Offered for sale is a lovely 1870-1890 period German porcelain ecuelle (broth bowl with cover and stand) produced by the Dresden firm of Helena Wolfsohn in the style of Meissen and marked with a spurious Augustus Rex symbol. The ecuelle features hand painted vignettes of mischievous putti framed in a gilt scroll work with crosshatch design in purple. The cover is topped with a rose and trailing vine, and the broth bowl features twisted branch handles.

Helena Wolfsohn owned a porcelain-decorating studio, which began operation in Dresden, Germany, in 1843. During her lifetime, her shop was one of the most prolific decorating studios in Dresden. She did not produce her own porcelain but purchased white blanks from Meissen as well as from other famous porcelain factories. Her mark was often mistaken for one of those factories, especially Meissen. Whether or not this was done on purpose to deceive is still in question amongst historians. However, what is not in question is that she painted pieces of exceptional quality and artistic merit, and that her wares have become collectable in their own right.

The trio is in excellent condition.
