|Title:||Schumann Bavaria China Set|
|Condition:||Excellent; missing 2 tea cups broken in shipment|
|Origin:||Purchased in West Germany in 1975|
|Appraised By:||Kimberly Rager|
|Appraiser Comments:||The Carl Schumann factory operated in Arzburg, Germany (Bavaria) from 1881-1996.
Schumann china was famous for its striking resemblance, in both quality and style, to the revered Dresden dinnerware.
Employing the same "Rococo revival" decorating techniques as these more prominent manufactures, Schumann china is known for its colorful fruit and flower patterns, set upon a translucent, eggshell white porcelain.
Some of the more popular patterns can be found here, including the "Dresden flower" patterns "Empress" and "Chateau," as well as the "Dresdner Art" series.
Carl Schumann porcelain marks vary depending upon which variety of Schumann you see. Beginning in 1881, the Carl Schumann factory in Arzburg, Germany, produced highly colorful porcelain with an unmistakable Dresden nuance.
Schumann Bavaria, Schumann Germany Chateau, Schumann Bavaria Dresdner Art, Schumann Germany Empress, Schumann Arzburg Germany, Schumann Dresden, and more recently Schumann Germany U. S. Zone are examples of the different types of Carl Schumann porcelain marks.
