Found this at VOA today since GW was another big zero. Don't know why but it was sitting with the kitchen ware. It's 9" tall x 9" in diameter and actually made in two pieces. The bowl and the pedestal are held together with a small screw and a little square bolt. This has also caused a hairline stress crack across the middle of the bottom. One of the scallops on the top was also broken in two pieces and was glued back in place. The design looks all hand painted in gold gilt with a red background. There's a small impressed mark on the inside bottom of the pedestal it looks like a "W" or "M" depending which way you turn it. I'd love to take it apart and check the bottom of the bowl for a mark, but the screw is rusty and I'm afraid of making the crack worse. Could be Continental or US. I checked all the big makers Limoges, Dresden, Meissen and Haviland etc, Nothing like it really. Hard to tell the age of pieces like this unless there's a clear mark. -Mike-
