Here is an early Meissen dish molded with Gotzkowsky reliefs—a floral wreath tied with ribbons in the well and four flower and leaf panels around the lobed rim—and painted with colorful German flowers in the center and in the four unmolded rim panels, with a rim that has a gilt seeded trellis border enriched with gilt. Gotzkowsky was an investor in the earliest Berlin porcelain factory and this style of raised-flower relief decoration was invented there, but other factories picked it up, along with Meissen. It has Meissen’s crossed swords mark on the back, and is in excellent condition but for slight surface wear. The diameter is nine and a half inches.
