« on: January 25, 2007, 10:09:23 PM »
I just picked this up at a Goodwill and have been searching all over the internet and can't figure out what it is.... What is it used for? I would love any kind of info I can get!!!  What is the print on it? Anyone know what year it was made?? It is 8" across and 4.5" high (from the base to the top of the handle) Thanks!!!

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Probably designed by Georges Briard. My book doesn't give the pattern a name.
