Wonderful porcelain tray (very big) with two cups and saucers for coffee by Ernst Wahliss, Austria. The crown under the saucers let date the work from the period between 1807-1906, as a very early deco and very rare piece. . Wahliss was a leading Vienna retailer in porcelain and ceramic goods. His Vienna store was established in 1863. His business was so successful that he was able to open another store in London.
In 1894 Ernst Wahliss took over the Alfred Stellmacher factory in Turn-Teplitz (situated in today's Czechia). He renamed the factory to Ernst Wahliss Kunst, Porzellan und Fayence Fabrik.
Ernst died in 1900. Two years later his sons, Hans and Erich, bought 600 moulds from the Imperial and Royal Porcelain Manufactory in Vienna. Using these molds they started making reproductions of Vienna porcelain. The porcelain manufacture was closed in 1929.
