Decor question

I am looking for help to identify this decor on a Rosenthal tableware.
It was once (around 1900) very popular and there must have been a lot of different decors. All I can find so far are Victoria Luise(pansy) and C├Ącilie ( large roses) and Auguste Victoria (fruit).
I wote to Rosenthal, but no answer so far.
Any ideas?

I hope that you have broadband, because there are so many Rosenthal patterns.

Thanks, Phoenix!
They have the pattern, but not this decor.
I will use their ID- help.
It would be fun if they could even locate some items.

Hi ul,

It looks like it is from the Pompadour series. I have the Pompadour
"Moss Rose" service, and it is a bit different, but still in the same family.

Hi Calamity,

no, it is from the Chrysantheme series, manufactored around 1900.

Oh, how gorgeous. I've never seen this pattern and I love the design.
Rosenthal did make some beautiful china, didn't they?

Ul -- You might try your public library, particularly if, as in the US, your library is part of a network that allows for books to be sent from one system to another. There are books on all the major china manufacturers.

You might consider talking to antique dealers who specialize in china in general and in Rosenthal in particular. They know a great deal about such things and are generally willing to share their knowledge.

Thanks for your interest.
Library is a very good point, and I will certainly go, as soon as I have the time.
I did write to the manufacture, no answer after several weeks.
I am on several china collecting boards, I got several offers to sell it ( I am not selling it), but no information.
So I thought of A2K - there are so many knowledgeable people here- someone might know..

I'm glad that you posted a picture of it: it's a lovely set. I like the post-Victorian/Edwardian/Arts and Crafts shapes with the retrained decoration. Still feminine but not fussy.

@ul,
Hello Friends,

Brilliant colours once again take center stage in the new Rosenthal meets Versace collection Flower Fantasy this year. Sophistication, elegance and lightness merge in a harmonious floral juxtaposition with alternating shades of delicate green. Nature dictates the decorative interplay: A joyful awakening of meadow herbs and sweet scented flowers, where freesias, lilies of the valley, pansies and lucky four-leaf clovers interweave in a subtle design. The design is derived from one of the Italian fashion company's archival prints. The decoration, in dreamy tones of red, pink and lilac, is embellished by Versace's classic geometric motif in a deep shade of grass-green set off by a precious gold thread. The exuberance of the "Flower Fantasy" dinner service evokes the romantic and festive mood of spring, equally appropriate for a grand table setting or a romantic dinner for two.


Best Regards,
Matin John
