THE VIENNA Bakery ~ Louisville, KY ~ 1912 Bauscher Brothers


This is a dandy piece from Louisville, KY. Frank Erpeldinger, a German immigrant, founded The Vienna bakery in 1893 and in the early 1900s, it moved to 133-135 S. Fourth Street.

The building itself was an Art Nouveau gem, with separate dining rooms for men and women. Rookwood tiles and stained glass were used both inside and outside and the bakery was considered one of the premier restaurants until 1927 when the building was sold.

This piece is an unusual shape, measuring approx. 10 by 6 inches and standing 1 1/2 inches deep. The Vienna is written in elaborate script in green with green and gilt lines. Bauscher Brothers manufactured this dish in 1912, over 100 years ago!

Minimal utensil use but there is a manufacturer's defect/chip on the foot, which doesn't detract from this terrific serving piece.

Don't miss out! Great piece of Louisville history.
