Silver Stunner

Like all enthusiastic bloggers, I am not above the occasional hyperbolic statement. With that said....This is one of the most STUNNING pieces we have ever received in our shop!!! Silver overlay atop black Bavarian porcelain. Marked with both the Rosenthal logo and the name Johann Haviland. That would be the grandson of David Haviland (one of the first Americans to import porcelain created in Limoges back in the mid 1800's). Johann carried on the family tradition by setting up business in Germany in 1907. This piece was from the period after 1933, when his company was bought by Rosenthal.
8" high and 8" wide
