was a respected decorator of porcelain blanks obtained from a vaiety of different porcelain companies from about 1843 until 1883. Helena was most famous for the decorative pieces she turned out in the distinctive Rocco fashion which were highly ornate porcelain pieces that featured brightly colored flowers, shells, and foliage.
Helena painted in the Dresden, or Meissen, style as many highly skill decorators did in the Dresden area of Germany at that time. Highly skilled decorators in this era used the same Dresden mark while altering it slightly in order to identify themselves. The Dresden mark’s primary feature was a stunning blue crown.
