RS Prussia Hand-Painted Artist-Signed Creamer And Matching Underplate, Circa 1891, Mint Condition
RS PRUSSIA CREAMER – EXQUISITE, HANDPAINTED, ARTIST SIGNED, “ROYAL RUDOLSTADT”, CREAMER & MATCHING UNDERPLATE. This little gem is 4 1/4″ tall, and is 3″ wide at the base. The underplate measures 5 1/2″ across. I believe the design is called “Poppies”. This creamer is circa 1891. It is in MINT CONDITION. It has NO CHIPS, NO CRACKS, and NO CRAZING. There is minor wear to the gold-tone. (TRULY a REMARKABLE PIECE for it’s age) It is ADORNED with multicolored poppies, and lush green leaves. This is all in a VERY DELICATE contoured shape, that only VERY HIGH END CHINA exhibits. It is all TRIMMED IN GOLD. (see photo’s) The TRADEMARK is “Prussia”, over a CROWN, which is in turn, over a “Hay-Fork” symbol containing the letter “B”. The “B” is is over the name, “ROYAL RUDOLSTADT”. (see photo’s) What makes this piece, (and any other “Prussia” piece) so UNIQUE, is that it is SIGNED by the ARTIST.
