Vintage 1920s Schumann Dresden Porcelain Chateau Dish Plate Reticulated Edge


Brand Etsy

This is a small plate made in a slightly bowl-like shape by Carl Schumann Porcelain of Arzberg, Bavaria, Germany, founded in 1881. This plate is made in the Chateau design and features a floral spray in its centre and a reticulated rim that is decorated with small flowers in the intersections of the cross hatch. The backside of the plate is stamped with the Bavaria Schumann DresdenerArt lion mark, which was used only between 1928 and 1933. Carl II, grandson of the original owner, studied in America during the 1920s and set up the Schumann China Corporation in 1928 as an importer of Schumann china to the United States - the corporation was closed in 1933 and this backstamp was used only for those imports to the US during that period. The plate measures 6 1/2 in diameter and is in very good condition with no chips, cracks or pronounced wear - it displays very well. Lovely quality - small, but pretty!
