Beautiful RS Tillowitz German Porcelain Biscuit Jar
Handpainted by M.P. Shelley in 1926
Lovely Art Deco Dragonfly design in warm colors
about 4.5" tall not including the lid which adds another 1" and is 5.5" in diameter
the opening is 4" in diameter
This lovely piece is a pale yellow with browns, oranges and yellows used to apply the handpainted freeform art deco dragonflies. Painted by M.P. Shelley in 1926, this is a true one of a kind piece. The RS Tillowitz factory is reknowned for its lovely work.
I know little about this piece other than it caught my eye at an auction. There are no chips, cracks, crazing or any issues other than some tape marks on the lid and a decent layer of dirt.
It is the perfect size to use as a true biscuit jar or to hide some "candy for the company" as my kids used to call it. The top is a different color than the body. I don't know if that was intentional or from fading, but it works - see photo. It does need some cleaning and there are tape marks from where its original owner taped down the lid. I know nothing about the care of porcelain, so leave that for its new owner.
This is a very high quality piece and you can own it for a mere fraction of its retail value with the winning bid starting at only 99 cents.
Feel free to ask any questions before bidding, I want you to be satisfied!
