Lovely Meissen Marcolini Rococo Basket with separate applied sections on top of the reticulated basket ..the reticulated sections are hand -cut and it is interesting to note that on one side, the potter/artist forgot to cut out two openings to match the other side.. delightfully hand-painted with flowers & fruit; with two bunches of grape clusters on one side held up by French blue ribbons. The 24K. gold trim is beautiful & abundant & 99.9% intact. There have been professional restorations, but not on the main body, handle & some flowers on the handle.. Quite well-done. An unique and yes, rare Meissen basket.. measures11" long x 8" wide x 4" high.. Meissen mark on base.
