R.S. are the initials for Reinhold Schlegelmilch, who was the private owner of a porcelain factory in Suhl, Germany. The company was founded in the late 1800's . This bowl is a fine example of the high quality workmanship which was produced at the RS factory. The company started using this blue mark after 1904.

The flower decoration was transferred using a process that did not involve hand painting. Hand painting became too expensive in the competitive environment of the era. The gold accents were applied by hand and added definition and class.

Snowball Flowers or Hydrangea are a great choice for colder climates like Germany. The flowers are not bothered by late spring frosts. The plants produce large white round flower heads that resemble snowballs and remain attractive until late into the season. Pants tolerate light shade as well.
