Schumann Dresden, hand painted portraits, 7 pc nut set
for item safn-2935
Complete 7 piece nut set, each with reticulated edging, alternating panels of gold trimmed open lattice and hand painted flowers on the borders. Each piece decorated with hand painted portraits derived from famous french artists' works from the rococo period. The Master nut dish measures 7 1/4" in diameter, being 2" deep. The 6 matching nut bowls are almost 4" in diameter and are 1" deep. Each piece is an individual work of art. The small bowls have matching left and right facing portraits in 3 pairs (6 bowls). Lavishly decorated with gold detailing on each piece. There are no chips, cracks or dings on any of the pieces. I have a photo of the backstamp, which is one of the very early marks, the blue shield with the Schumann Dresden mark. Also marked Germany & Hand painted. Not enough room to show all closeups of berry bowls. I have pictures of them also, upon request. Rare to find a complete original nut set in this wonderful condition.
