This is an absolutely beautiful and MINT condition KPM porcelain'Lobster bowl' or divided rectangular bowl with center handle. Nice size, and solid porcelain weighing over 2 pounds. This mint beauty in pink is Marked with a blue KPM sceptor, a made in Germany mark, and a handwritten number. The mark is attributed to 1855 to 1899.
This bowl was displayed rather than used. I have grown to LOVE PINK porcelain- German to Old Paris, see my other listings as I add new items weekly. It really is a beauty and if you love PINK porcelain like I do, you will appreciate it! Great for nuts, candy at Bridal shower, or during the holidays; or for lobster or other shellfish service as originally designed, or even for divided vegetable serving!
OR just keep it in your PINK room for a pretty accent. Even the bed or bath for guest soaps etc.The measurements are 12" in length, by around 11" wide, by 3 " high at rim, the center handle stands higher, closer to around 5 or 5" tall. The gilt on rim is excellent.
The delicate blue floral pattern in center is intact and really a nice contrast to the pink and gold. In overall excellent condition for the age.
