Dux Porcelain Bowl

Posted Monday, May 22 by Brian

Hi Brian,

Thank you for taking the time to look at my picture and dish. The mark on the bottom is an acorn inside a triangle. It is hard to see in the photo. Anything you could tell me about them would be much appreciated.

Your bowl was made by the Dux Porcelain Manufactory in Czechoslovakia. The impressed mark with the acorn in a triangle was used from 1918-1945. They are best known for their figurines as well as vases and bowls with figural ladies. Both can be very expensive. Items with just flowers are not as sought after. I could not find anything close enough to your bowl to hazard a guess about value. It is also possible from the shape of the bowl, that there may have been a figurine that stood in the center of the bowl. It would most likely have been a lady, and the base would likely have had holes for arranging flowers. Center bowls with lady flower holders were popular in the 1930's.
