Schumann Chateau Dresden Flowers Reticulated Pierced Oval Serving Dish
Beautiful white porcelain piece by Schumann decorated in its famous and desirable Dresden flowers design, the "Chateau" pattern, with floral bouquets in the center and stunning reticulated rim hand painted in gold. Small sprays of flowers accent the central bouquet and the sides have alternating panels of flowers and pierced lattice with flowers. Delicate gold motifs complete the composition. It has the red Schumann Bavaria Crown and Shield back stamp, along with Schumann Germany Chateau Dresden Flowers and 16 backstamped in gold and 32 in blue. I think the marks indicate production period. Measures 6 ¾” long, 4 ½” wide and 1 ¾” deep. Excellent condition with no flaws I can find.
