My paternal grandmother was a random saver of things. She would save odds and ends of things mainly from her grandmother. She started "gifting" these things to me when I was 12 years old. I know I didn't appreciate them then, but I certainly do now. This particular compote is marked "Prussia" on the bottom with a "B". I know little else so if some of you out there have some knowledge - I'd welcome more information on it.
