Description

Founded in 1710 in Meissen, near Dresden, by August II the Strong of Saxony, following the research of the chemist Johann Friedric Böttger, the factory entered into crisis with the Seven Years War and went through various vicissitudes. The Louis XVI taste was later introduced to rival Sèvres. A notable diffusion on the market took place between 1833 and 1870, with the revival and remaking of objects from the golden period in the Neorococo style; in the late nineteenth century, objects of eclectic taste spread. In the last decade of the nineteenth century, the Italian court purchased various services reproducing eighteenth-century decorations, and often ordered replicas of the ancient services. The tureen reuses the “Deutsche Vogel” pictorial decoration and the “Alt Ozier” relief border. The pieces are characterized by pictorial motifs of brightly colored birds on twigs and insects, on a brilliant white background; a part of the bottom has a subtle basket-like weaving modeling. The raised edge is gilded; the handles and the knob of the lid are made by re-proposing tasty rocailles motifs, also partially gilded.
