It's funny how sometimes you collect an item, and at the time, don't give much thought as to where it originated. This is one such piece. It was bought on a whim because the price was right, and I loved the simple design of the German Folk Art.
As it turns out, the pottery piece has a lot of history to go with it. It was made in the town of Marburg, Germany by the Schneider's Pottery, a sixth generation potter. The Schneider family has owned the business for over 200 years.
In this photo, I was hoping to show you how the paint is applied with a raised effect.
After some searching, on the Internet, I found Schneider's website, which is in German.
If you click HERE , you can read about their history and see examples of pottery. With my computer, I simply right click, while my cursor is on the page, and I can translate it into English.
So now, after writing this post, I'm wondering how did the pottery plate find it's way to Texas. That story will probably remain a mystery.....
