I've always loved these but never expected to find one I could buy......but here I am.
Online I found the collection of Richard Rush, and amongst many, this same punch bowl shape (different silhouettes) was identified as;
Schale Adolf Beckart (Entwurf)
Fachschule Steinschonau um 1915
The gilding on the rim is worn and there are two small flaws, but more than made up for by the vivacity of the figures depicted in the frieze. Paintwork is on the outside. The panels between frieze and base look to be hand work.....the edges seem far too crisp for a mould.
