Early Open Salt Dish

This is a rare open salt dish made by Hoechst during their early years in the 18th century around 1760. The piece has a superb shape with a nice relief apttern to the rim, a brown trim to the edge and lots of flowers / floral arrangements all around. Some elongated leaves with yellow flowers were painted on firing flaws - thin firing cracks mostly on the top inside. A big black firing spot on the underside was also converted into a leaf :) The salt is marked underneath with the red wheel mark as well as an impressed set of letters I and two other ones I cannot make out. The dish is in superb condition with wear to the brown trim on the rim and a small shallow rim chip to the underside footring. It is 1.5 inches tall, 3.5 inches wide and 2.75 inches deep. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $649
