This is a double-handled sugar dish that was made in Selb, Bavaria, Germany, by Krautheim and Adelberg. It is decorated with groups of lilac, blue, pink, and yellow flowers (with green leaves), on a white background. There is gold gilding, on the handles and around the top and bottom rims. The pattern is called Millefleurs and it was made between 1964 and 1975. The dish has a mark on its underside that includes the words “Franconia”, “K&A”, “Krautheim”, “Selb, Bavaria, Germany”, and “Millefleurs”.

In 1884, Christoph Krautheim opened a shop in Selb, Bavaria that decorated white porcelain blanks that were made by other companies. In 1889, Richard Adelberg joined the business. In 1912, Krautheim and Adelberg began making their own porcelain. Around 1933, heirs of Krautheim began running the business. Kratheim and Adelberg began putting the word “Franconia” on its hallmarks, after 1945. It is unclear what this word meant. I read somewhere that Fraconia was an export mark. I also read somewhere else that Krautheim and Adelberg was acquired by a company named Franconia China, around 1945. I have been unable to find anything to support either of these claims. Since Franconia is the region in southern Germany in which the state of Bavaria is located, this word on porcelain may have simply been giving recognition to the region in which the porcelain was made. In 1979, the Kratheim and Adelberg factory filed for backruptcy and closed.

This item is about 4 inches high, including the lid. It is about 2 3/4 inches high, without the lid. The dish is about 5 3/4 inches wide, including the handles. It is about 4 1/2 inches wide, without the handles.

This sugar dish is in very good condition, with no chips, cracks, or loss of gold gilding.
