Cash only. Realistically worth $200+ to collector of early Mrazek porcelain painted in the traditional Czechoslovakian style. Lovely decorative piece.

This is a large hand-painted 100 year old Highly collectible. Very desirable earliest Joseph Mrazek piece. The makers mark is a Black sea bird duck or mallard mark on the bottom. This bird mark is a sought after collectible early mark of the Czech artist Joseph Mrazek used only 1918-1922. Early New York artist Mrazek ceramics were painted on purchased pre-made Macy's pieces, hence his early mark: the large dark bird makers mark -- it covered nicely the Macys mark.
