Antique VON SCHIERHOLZ German Porcelain Centerpiece Bowl with 4 Cherubs/Putti. This delightful bowl is an example of the fine craftsmanship of the Von Schierholz factory in Germany in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Dimensions: 9" diameter at widest point; diameter of bowl alone is about 7 1/4", tallest cherub is about 5.5 The dish is exquisitely sculpted, with luscious, three-dimensional flowers upon the rim, and lovely, playful putti holding the dish aloft. The sculpting of the 4 children is masterful, with graceful poses and pretty features, and all the painting is of a very high caliber-- delicate in color and line. The center of the bowl is decorated with more hand painted flowers in the typical Dresden style.
The bottom is marked with the Von Schierholz shield mark and "Handmalerei" (Handpainted). The condition of the piece is generally excellent, scarcely affected by several little chips to flower petals and leaves which are typical of this type of fragile antique (see photo #6). There are no missing fingers or toes. SHOP WITH CONFIDENCE WITH OUR 100% FEEDBACK! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO ASK AND I WILL RESPOND PROMPTLY.
