Jugendstil is my style. I simply feel it represents me. Some call this seccesionist or wien style. This tray is about 16 cm diameter, is handpainted, it is not a tranfer design. I do not remember to whom we bought it but was in the fleet market and was not expensive at all. The third picture is from Rubylane http://www.rubylane.com/item/669694-5109/Art-Nouveau-Max78-Dannhorn-Porcelain-Metal and in fact the backstamped pattern number is the same 9010. There it is publicized as Villeroy and Boch, instead I am persuaded it is Waechtersbach keramiks that has as designer Joseph Maria Olbrich. One of the better examples of the seccesionist movement. This tray has been done around or before the first war. The fourth pic is from http://www.museion-versand.de/Jugendstil-Fliesen-Infocard and shows several floral jugendstil designs.
