Hello guys, Hope all of you have had a GREAT day...Just a few shots of my Victorian side board..
The big platter is Limoges France it's 20 inches long...Hand painted ca. 1900I have a few of my R.S. Prussia china bowls..these also are all hand painted.. The "RS" in RS Prussia is derived from its founder, Reinhold Schlegelmilch. While his factory enjoyed limited success, it was the work of his two sons, Arnold and Ehrhard that would make the mark bearing his initials famous. While Ehrhard continued to operate the factory in Suhl, Arnold went on to found a second factory in nearby Tillowitz. These two operations produced the majority of their products for export beginning in 1892 up until the beginning of World War I. During this period, most of the pieces exported to the United States bore the mark described above, with Prussia in red beneath. In 1910, the Tillowitz factory began using the all-green "RS Germany" mark, and miraculously continued producing fine China through the second world War. The original factory in Suhl closed down before the First World War ended.Breif History:
Just some close up and personal shots of my Victorian side board...I just love the griffins on this piece..: a mythical animal typically having the head, forepart, and wings of an eagle and the body, hind legs, and tail of a lion
I love the quarter sawn oak of this piece...side board is ca. 1880
Just random shots I took of my side board..I have a few new followers I thought might want to see it...Thanks for coming by my mountain and seeing me...
Until next time
Hugs and smiles Gloria
