This is an incredible set of 4 plates measuring 7.75”.
Wonderfully scalloped porcelain design edge with floral blossoms & leaves accenting them. Finished with a gold line at the edge of the rim. Gold shows some wear. Nominal I feel for being 113 years old!
They are simply lovely and I know anyone purchasing these will surely find them a treasure. These dishes from that era and caliber of overall workmanship are prized by those who love and appreciate these kinds of fine wares.
They are very chic! Victorian Floral, Romantic Prairie, Country Sweet Chic, Romantic Cottage, German Elegant or other unique décor theme!
Perfect compliment to a collection or for selective use with foods. Victorian tea anyone? Even used to serve Petit Fours, Mini Cheese Cakes, Cake Balls, Nut Balls, CupCakes or other Petite foods at a fine soiree …. They would be just beautiful & elegant!
If not being used with food, they are absolutely incredible plates to use as décor accents!
Sure to be appreciated by others what ever their use!
I see no others of this specific floral design online. It seems other patterns have more pieces available.
History of the Company
The factory is often incorrectly claimed to have been located in the town of Waldenburg (today Wałbrzych), but Hermann Ohme only had a decoration studio there and his main factory actually was in Nieder-Salzbrunn (today Sczawienko). Niedersalzbrunn was part of the town 'Bad Salzbrunn' (today Szczawno-Zdrój) that included the town areas 'Obersalzbrunn', 'Niedersalzbrunn' and 'Neu Salzbrunn'; Bad Salzbrunn itself is located in the former Waldenburg district.
Ohme mainly produced full dinner sets which were available in two distinct types of porcelain. The so-called 'Clear Glaze' and 'Old Ivory' wares were both made from the same quality of porcelain but the 'Old Ivory' type received an additional light ivory colored matte glaze. The 'Clear Glaze' type, decorated with a wide variety of floral and geometric patterns, was produced for the European and the U.S. market; it was also the most produced type as it was also sold as undecorated (or 'blank') porcelain in great numbers.
The customers for these blank products were not only hobbyists, large numbers were purchased by commercial decorating firms such as Pickard and Stouffer. For the U.S. market the 'Old Ivory' type always carried the 'Old Ivory' brand name; other genuine 'Old Ivory' items (comparison mold/decoration) can be found without the 'Old Ivory' mark and were mainly for the British market. Blanks were also issued from this type of porcelain, but they are quite rare.
In 1913 the company was owned by Hermann Ohme, E.M. Bauer and Hermann Ohme jr. and together they further increased production for the export market which later proved to be a fatal decision. Ignoring the first signs of what later should become the World Financial Crisis the company tried to further expand and in 1930 the number of employees reached a total of 400 people. As the company had only concentrated on export alone, business suddenly dropped in the same way the financial market collapsed and the company was forced to file for bankruptcy the same year.
