Synopsis: This book explores porcelain wares produced by the Reinhold Schlegelmilch Porcelain Factory [marked R. S. Prussia], of Suhl, Germany, and sold to America from 1888 through 1900. The wonderfully molded and decorated plates and platters, tea sets, pitchers, clocks, and decorative objects are described with over 760 beautiful color images. An entire chapter is devoted to the company's charming toy china sets. Displayed are wares formed from a variety of molds (including Fleur-de-Lis and Melon) and patterns (outline transfer, King George, and Coraline patterns, to name a few). Newly discovered mold patterns are included, along with a history of the company's early operations, wholesale and trade catalog pages illustrating wares exported to the United States, the manufacturer's marks employed during this early period, a bibliography, and several appendices. This book will guide all collectors of Victorian porcelain to recognize the early pieces marked R. S. Prussia.
Product Description: Over 770 images and meticulous research combine to present Art Nouveau table, tea, and decorative wares made by the Prussian Reinhold Schlegelmilch Porcelain Factory. Exported to America in the early 20th century, they are arranged chronologically by mold patterns with much original catalog copy. Decorations including cobalt, gold, and scenic and portrait transfers are discussed. The Hidden Image pattern is explored and products marketed under the Royal Vienna Germany trade name are included.
