CHINA BUTTER PATS, China Trinket Dishes, Set of 4 Dishes, Hertel Jacob Porcelain, Bavaria Germany, floral china dishes, Gold Edge


  • Details
    The Porzellfabrik Hertel, Jacob & Co. G.m.b.H. was in business in Germany from 1913 until 1979. Based on the maker's mark on the bottom of the dishes this set of 4 little dishes is probably from the later period of the company - 1969-79.

    These little dishes may have been intended to be used as individual butter dishes accompanying each place setting of dishes at a table, but because of the later date of their creation and their larger than average size, the maker may have had a more expanded vision for their use. Their slightly larger size would definitely fit the modern tendency to use such sweet pieces as trinket dishes to hold rings and small jewelry, change or other small items that need a temporary and handy resting place at various times during the day.

    Each dish measures approx. 4 3/8" across at their largest spot and are in ideal condition with no visible crazing, flaws, damage, or wear --- great pieces of fine German porcelain for you or to give as a gift.
