Here's a pretty shabby chic rose motif pitcher that's perfect for holding flowers or liquids. The mark on the bottom says "Germany" and has a crown with the letters on G and H each side which was the mark of Greiner and Herda, makers of German porcelain. My research indicates it was made sometime before 1936 when Greiner retired and Herda took over the business.

Little raised bumps circle the top of the pitcher for a charming effect. There is a tiny bit of wear where some gold paint was on the roses...not too distracting from the design. There are a few small chips on on the bottom rim that are not bad, other wise it's in great vintage shape for it's age.

Perfect for a tea party or to liven up a kitchen table.
6 1/2" wide x 5 1/2' tall

In 1886 Greiner & Herda opened a decoration studio in Oberkotzau and started to decorate fine porcelain from different manufacturers. They were very successful and themselves very interested in porcelain production process. Greiner had put an impressive amount of money in the company and decided to at least give it a try. This resulted in different modifications on the premises which finally enabled the company to slowly start producing porcelain items between 1905 and 1907. Right from the start they were able to sign various contracts including one with the US distibutor George H. Bowman Co. from Cleveland, Ohio, who quickly became one of their main customers. Around 1913 the factory already had a workforce of 150 people and the product range was at its largest at this point. The workforce constantly increased up to 200 people in 1937, the year in which Greiner retired and Karl Herda became sole proprietor. Over the years the company of Greiner & Heida offered a wide range of household items and decorational porcelain with a special focus on coffee and tea sets.
