Amazing Floating Flower & Leaf Design
- DESCRIPTION -
Please be patient there are 20 photos to be loaded in this sale.
Up in this sale is a wonderful Villeroy & Boch/ Schramberg, art nouveau, Majolica flower plate w/raised piping around the design. 12" diameter. It is designed to look like flowers and leaves floating in a pond. The basic color is aqua or turquoise with white flowers and green leaves.
Marked with the Villeroy & Boch/ Schramberg mark. Ca. 1928-1945. The plate has no major chips or cracks, but there is noticeable fleabytes on several of the raised flowers and leaves piping and a couple of glaze fleabytes on the rim. There is no crazing and the colors are still vivid.
The back shows the famed Schramberg mark with their pattern number 1977 embossed, another number 2 is also embossed.
In 1912 the factory was sold to the Jewish brothers Moritz and Leopold Meyer, who introduced the 'SMF' mark in its first version including a fir tree. The business was a normal privately owned business until the brothers decided to reform the business as a company with limited liability, so it was restructured as G.m.b.H. in 1918. All went well for the next years and on March 12th 1922, Moritz Meyer proudly announced the birth of his son Peter.
The Meyer brothers were always looking for new designs and many famous artists joined the factory or contributed designs. One of these well known artist was the Hungarian Eva Zeisel (maiden name Stricker), who designed at Schramberg from the fall of 1928 until the summer of 1930. Most of these designs were not produced immediately, but began appearing in 1930 and the subsequent years. Her earlier works there were strongly influenced by the then-strong Bauhaus movement, but she always followed her own impulse to combine the needs of the marketplace with the human component. Hence her Schramberg work often seems of the art-deco school, but also reflects the folk art interest of her earlier work, and the industrial factory requirements of the various factories for whom she designed.
Eva Zeisel not only designed the shapes but also supplied the intended decorations for the pieces. The decoration department however often adapted her original concepts and applied them to other pieces. For example, a pattern intended for use on a plate would change proportions if wrapped around a cup or teapot, so Zeisel would sometimes feel the design was not exactly as she had conceived it. The factory continued producing Zeisel designs for some time after she left, but often put different patterns on her shapes and also used her patterns on shapes which were not hers. This happened particularly with the wildly popular 'Mondrian' design, which often appears on non-Zeisel shapes.
During the upcoming anti-jewish movement shortly before World War II, the Nazis forced Moritz and Leopold Meyer to sell the factory in 1938 and both emigrated to England with their families during 1938. But after the war, in 1949, Peter Meyer returned to Germany together with his family and the Meyer family was instantly allowed to take over the business again. After years of hard work rebuilding the damaged factory Peter married Julie Broghammer in 1958 and together they had two children, Annette and Michael. Estimated shipping weight, (packaged) is 3 lbs 8 oz in a 16 x 16 x 8 box.

Please note: We put up a very ecclectic collection of items and are not experts in every area,
so descriptions are our best guess as to what something is. While we try to research each item to the
best of our ability, it is the buyer's responsibility to know what they are buying.
TERMS OF SERVICE
is ALL we do for a living, husband and wife (Norb & Marie) working together, while we home school our kids on our farmette in Rural Delmarva. We have worked very hard to build our little business and it is very important to us. We try and do business the old fashioned way and have a rather simple outlook.
Treat all of your customers as if they are family.
Be courteous, answer emails, be fair in all your deallings and try and make friends of each and every customer.
BUT... with 's new star rating and the rate increases in the U.S. Postal rates we needed to define and explain our methods of business.
ONE - Who We Deal With
We sell and ship world wide to anywhere, so please email us for a quote to wherever you happen to be.
TWO - Shipping Charges
We charge shipping based on the USPS system, we will sometimes ship via courier if we can get it to you within the same time frame or faster. We add a reasonable cost for materials, normally that is $2.00 for regular sized packages. For small flat items $1.00. That covers the expense of boxes, envelopes, bubble wrap, peanuts, (We only use new packing materials, life is too short to scrounge through dumpsters). For larger items that take a larger more expensive box, we charge a little more, to cover the special box, example paintings or lamps. For oversized items or items that will take special attention to package, (Build a crate, wrap a zillion things individually, etc.), we ask you to email us for a quote on shipping prior to the sale ending. If you do not, we charge the same amount as if you did. In other words WE NEVER GOUGE OUR CLIENTS SHIPPING COSTS!!
THREE - International Shipping
We charge shipping based on the USPS international system. The rates follow the same guidelines as number two above, though for international customers we add an additional $1.00 to cover the extra paperwork involved in international shipping. If an amount goes over $50 in value we will only ship it with Priority or Express Mail, regardless how small an item. That allows for us to have international tracking. There is no tracking available on First Class Mail.
FOUR - Insurance
's policies no longer allows us to charge the client for insurance. But... we still apply insurance to any item that goes over $27.00 in value. We reserve the right to use the insurance carrier of our choice. Sometimes that is Postal or the Carrier's Insurance and sometimes that is a private insurance company such as DSI or U-PIC/Shipsurance. If we use a private insurance company the package will not be marked insured, but it will be.
FIVE - Methods of Payment Accepted
We aoffere by 's rules and try and stay abreast of their changes. We accept Paypal. Paypal also accepts the major credit cards, or we also take Credit Cards Directly over the phone, (MC, VISA, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS, CARTE BLANCHE, DINERS CLUB, JCB) Bottom line, whatever method is most convenient for you.
SIX - Time Frame To Pay
We ask all sales to be paid for in the fastest possible time frame. (This is all we do for a living and we need the money to pay the bills and buy more unique and fun items to put up on )
SEVEN - Shipping Time Frame
We make every effort to ship in a timely manner. We are home schooling the boys, listing tons of items, and as like any of us are just plain swamped, so we have to schedule a special time to pack and ship. We ship on a first paid, first shipped basis. (We do not ship any item until it has been paid and the funds have cleared.) With the ebb and flow of payments we manage to get everything out of the door within one week. If there is a rush, we will make every effort to work with you in getting it out of the door faster. As you can see from our response, we do not disappoint. OF COURSE, items that need special attention, crating, etc adds to the time frame of those items.
Finally, EIGHT - Communication
Please feel free to contact us at anytime, with any question or comment. Unless we are out of town we make an effort to answer all emails as quickly as possible.
