Photograph shows Nymphenburg china recovered during World War II on shelving and floor. Photo likely taken at either Buxheim Monastery or Neuschwanstein Castle. Item is inscribed on verso (handwritten): This is a small room filled with acquired china made in Nymphenburg (near Munich) also some fine [?] pieces. The Nymphenburg stuff is a lovely Rococo pattern in pure white [?] the molded detail in emerald green only [?] colors are used. It is very light and fresh looking. This is the first time I've ever been really impressed with china. Identification on verso (stamped): Please credit photo to Edward E. Adams.
