Antique RS GERMANY PRUSSIA Relish Dish Gold Trim BLUE MARK China PORCELAIN 6pc Lot#1
This is a Beautiful 6 piece Antique Small Relish Dish China Set with Gold Trim and Manufactured by RS Prussia.
We are pleased to present you a antique RS Germany berry bowl set for your consideration. 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.
This is a 6 piece lot of a small relish dish manufactured from 1910 to 1915. It is made of beautiful white porcelain with gold trim on its edge. Marked "RS" "Germany" with a wreath and a star in blue color. There is another visible mark of "Germany" on the white porcelain. Measures 6 1/4 inches long and 4 1/2 inches wide. Each dish weighs around 3.3 oz.
The china dish have no cracks, crazing, chips or repair marks. It shows some minor scratches on its top surface from normal use. The scratches are not noticeable until you look closer into it. The gilt on the edge has about 95% remaining. It is overall in very good condition.
This will be a perfect addition to your RS Prussia collection and make a great gift to your love one.
