This saucer is made by the Wahliss company in Austria between 1902 and 1910. The gilding is extremely beautiful depicting birds, grasses and bugs and is raised upon a deep blue background. In the middle are a pair of intials which look to be added later as the gilding is different and not raised. This was probably made for display ( which is exactly what I use it for on my bookshelf! ).
