This is a very elegant fine china shallow serving bowl or large soup bowl with a gentle scalloped edging that was produced by Seltmann in Weiden Germany. It is the Marie Luise pattern of china. The bowl is white with gold trim around the edges.
There is a backstamp on the bottom that shows a crown, Marie Luise, Seltmann, Weiden Germany. Weiden is in the Bavarian part of Germany.
Please see the photos for more detail.
We don't know when exactly this piece was made, however we purchased this set at an estate sale that had other older china sets.
There is a simple elegance to this piece and is a fine example of the china that the Seltmann company produced.
The bowl is approximately 9 1/2 inches in diameter.
This beautiful serving bowl is in excellent vintage condition. There is minimal wear on the base. There is very little wear on the delicate gold trim. There are no chips, cracks or crazing.
