I am questioning the backstamp on this bowl that I recently acquired from a 93-year old lady. I LOVE the bowl but would like to know its history. This round bowl measures a tad over 10" in diameter and sits almost 3" high. It features pink pastel roses with prickly vines. There is a band of gold trim on the bowls rim. There is a signature on the upper rim(see picture). I cannot decipher the name . . . Bernmayer? Bermayer? If YOU know, I'd love to hear. The backstamp is in green with an eagle inside an oval and some solid stripes and then the word "Prussia." Just down, below the stamp, is the word "Hand Painted" in cursive writing. The only place I was able to find this particular green mark was on a eBay listing and the seller stated that it is R S Prussia. I cannot find this mark ANYWHERE on any of the German Backstamp or Prussia searches that I have done. I would love for one of the collectors to give me their opinion as to whether or not this is a real stamp, fake or repro. Thank you in advance for your kind observation!
