Unidentified pottery mark on the back but most likely decorated by Josef Kuba who was a prominent Bavarian porcelain decorator. He started his decoration studio in the city of Karlsbad (now Czech Republic) in 1930 but after World War II he re-established his business in Wiesau (Bavaria). Since then, he decorated a few different pottery manufacturers, like Hutschenreuther or Tirschenreuth, and while Kuba decorated many items in a number of different styles, he preferred to include transfer applications based on oil paintings by the French artist Jean-Honoré Fragonard that mainly depict courting couples. After his death in 1972 his son Horst Kuba continued business until he decided to close in 1989.
