This porcelain bowl was produced in Germany by Donath Dresden in the 1890s. It measures 10 1/2 inches long, 7 inches high and 6 inches wide. There are reticulated borders around the edge of the bowl and around the edge of the foot. It is elaborately decorated with brilliantly colored sprays of hand painted flowers. The inside of the bowl is decorated as well. The reticulated borders are outlined with fancy gilding. The rims are trimmed with gold. This oblong shape is quite unusual for a Dresden bowl. It would be wonderful as a centerpiece on your dining table.
Condition: There is an ever so slight trace of wear to the gilding on the rim of the bowl. It is hardly noticeable with all of the decoration around it. The condition is very good.
