Picked this up at our local GW. Probably had a matching lady figurine, but she was no where to be found. Still has most of it's original foil label and some numbers as well as an impressed crown mark. -Mike-

Erphila Pottery History Courtesy of Kovel's:

Erphila is a mark found on Czechoslovakian, German, and other pottery and porcelain made after 1920. This mark was used on items imported by Ebeling & Reuss of Philadelphia, a giftware firm that was founded in 1866 and out of business sometime after 2002. The mark is a combination of the letters E and R (Ebeling & Reuss) and the first letters of the city, Phila(delphia). Erphila is one of many marks used by American importers. Many whimsical figural pitchers and creamers, figurines, platters, and other giftwares carry this mark.
