Product Description And Additional Pictures

This is a small piece of history, but too lovely to be excluded from our treasures! A single, but beautiful O & EG Oscar And Edgar Gutherz Altrolau Bohemia Royal Austria Antique Porcelain Punch Cup, painted in a very soft matte green with a pattern of white climbing roses on the exterior of the bowl. A simple thin gold line on the rim of the O & EG Oscar And Edgar Gutherz Altrolau Bohemia Royal Austria Antique Porcelain Punch Cup finishes this delicate piece off to perfection. This lovely O & EG Oscar And Edgar Gutherz Altrolau Bohemia Royal Austria Antique Porcelain Punch Cup is made from such thin porcelain that its transparent quality is visible without being held up to the light! The bowl of the O & EG Oscar And Edgar Gutherz Altrolau Bohemia Royal Austria Antique Porcelain Punch Cup is 3-3/8" in diameter. It stands 3-3/8" high, and has a base that is nearly 2-7/8" in diameter. Aside from the fact tht it has lost the set it originally belonged with, this lovely little O & EG Oscar And Edgar Gutherz Altrolau Bohemia Royal Austria Antique Porcelain Punch Cup is in perfect condition, with only minimal wear to the gold ring around the rim.

This solitary O & EG Oscar And Edgar Gutherz Altrolau Bohemia Royal Austria Antique Porcelain Punch Cup has the O&EG Royal Austria hallmark, which is printed in green with the word 'Royal' inside the wreath, the initials 'O&EG' above the wreath and 'Austria' below. This hallmark was used by Oscar and Edgar Gutherz of Altrolau, Bohemia (now Stara Role, Czech Republic) from 1899 to 1918. Oscar Gutherz had originally started a porcelain decorating business with Maximilian Marx in Altrolau in 1884, using financial backing from the American importer Lazarus Straus & Sons. The company subsequently expanded into porcelain production. In 1898, Oscar's brother, Edgar Gutherz, bought out Marx and joined Oscar in the business, which became known as the Oscar & Edgar Gutherz (O. & E.G.) Royal Austria Factory. In 1918 the Royal Austria Factory ceased to be; instead it became part of OEPIAG, the Austrian Porcelain Industry.

Make this little piece of history yours - put your paper clips in it, or place this wonderful O & EG Oscar And Edgar Gutherz Altrolau Bohemia Royal Austria Antique Porcelain Punch Cup in your curio cabinet. Whatever use you make of it, you'll bring a charming bit of the past into your life!
