Thuringia Strawflower Eggcups

This is a fun set of four egg cups made by one of the Thüringer makers - likely Rauenstein - in the 19th century. They are mostly unmarked except for a stray blue mark on two of them but the design and paste is typical of this maker. The strawflower or Stohblumen design was very popular due to it being able to get washed without affecting the painting since it is under the glaze. Each peice is handpainted with the design. Each egg cup is in perfect condition with some minor manufacturing flaws typical to these types of makers and items. One has a spot of glue or wax on the inside bottom. They are 2.375 inches tall and have a top diameter of 1.875 inches. Please email me for more information or photos.

Price is $225
