Nineteenth Century Meissen Fruit Plates - Set of Six

A set of six white porcelain fruit or dessert plates by the Meissen porcelain manufactory. The blanks have a rococo, scallop-shell border. They are decorated with hand painted images of fruit and flowers.

This is the finest painting I've seen thus far on Meissen. They are very tightly painted with a great sense of realism and attention to detail. The date to the second half of the nineteenth century.

The plates are 8.5" in diameter.

Condition: all have wear to the gilding. Some slight wear, others heavy wear, as can be seen in the photos. Interestingly, there is no wear from use to the centers or to the painted decoration. The gold loss must be entirely from regular and over-zealous cleaning. There is one 1.5" long scratch to the glaze on the underside of the rim of one of the plates. Otherwise fine.

Mark: cobalt blue crossed swords mark of the style used from 1850 to 1924. No incised lines through the mark, which means these are first quality. They were judged to be flawless and decorated at the Meissen factory.
