Royal Bayreuth was founded in 1794 in Tettau, Bavaria. The company is well known for it's superior, high quality porcelain items, many of which were hand painted. One of the highly collectable lines that Royal Bayreuth made is Rose Tapestry. The tapestry look was achieved by pressing fabric against the damp surface of the porcelain giving the textured look and feel of fabric. This lovely small vase exhibits many beautiful colors that show young lovers as they relax under the trees. The vase is 4 & 1/4 inches tall with a base of 1 & 1/2 inches. It is in excellent condition having only slight wear in the gilding around the rim of the vase. The colors are strong and the tapestry adds a different interesting dimension to the vase.
