In 1888 Julius Dressler founded a pottery factory in Biel, Bohemia, specialising in majolica. After 1910 little is known about Dressler, although it seems that he kept the factory until 1945.
He produced a series of items glazed in green, blue and brown with gold highlights. Dressler, was undoubtedly the leading Bohemian majolica maker of asparagus and berry servers. These include an exquisite tray with a separate sauce jug. It is clear that Dressler used the Art Nouveau style in the design of many of these servers.
Julius Dressler's stamp is in the form of a depressed tower on a stone base with the letters "JDB" at the bottom. Presumably the "B" stands for "Biela". Some pieces are also stamped with "Austria" and others with only the Austrian branding. Most also have a four-digit sample number.
