Vintage C.T. Germany Hand Painted Vegetable Bowl / Serving Bowl
A little research uncovered that this piece was made by C.T. Germany which was founded in Altwasser in 1845. The backstamp reveals that this piece was made between 1870 - 1900. Modern Vintage indeed. It measures 12 1/2" long, 8 1/2" wide and about 3" deep. There is lots of rubbing and fading to the gold accents but that is what made us love it so much. There is light, gentle rubbing to some of the floral design but nothing that we think detracts from it's overall beauty and function. It has no chips or cracks and for a serving dish that is almost 150 years old it is in incredibly good condition.
Autumn in the Country
It was cold and crisp outside; the kind of fall evening where your heaviest knit sweater is barely warm enough in the shade but just right in the hazy glow of the fading sun. Woolen blankets stood at the ready to provide additional warmth and candles were lit so that the hazy glow would remain once the sun had set.
