It is estimated that between 1895 and 1900, R. S. Prussia exports to U.S. wholesale firms increased between five and ten fold. It was during this time that the R. S. “Wing” trademark was used. The run of good fortune continued through 1903-05, partly due to the growing popularity of the Art Nouveau movement, and partly to the continued updating of the mold and decorating patterns.
