Vintage porcelain box for hairpins or powder?RSGerman


Selling Beautifully painted vintage porcelain vanity lidded box handpainted with gold design. Marked on bottom R S Germany from early 1900's.

Lidded box is white porcelain with gold painted accents. There is a 1 1/4" diameter hole in the center of the lid, easy to lift off by putting a finger or two inside. Could have been used to hold hold hair pins, or face powder and puff, or jewelry. Bottom mark in green RS Germany.

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. 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.

A nice piece to add to collection or to start one. Give as a gift, and use as a gift box with a piece of jewelry inside or a coupon, or lottery ticket. A gift with a gift. I am also selling other porcelain items in my store.
