Kaiser Wilhelm White China Powder Bowl

Kaiser Wilhelm White China Powder Bowl

This bowl was given to my great aunty Katie By Kaiser Wilhelm and Archduke Ferdidand @ a ball in austria at the turn of the century, (all the women attending received one) and has been passed down ever since. It shows the Hapsburg family crest but sadly it has lost its presentation box. This little connection with history has always fascinated me especially as Auntie Katie's neice Zoe Rudd went on to become the Nanny to the Von Trapp's children's real mother.
