A late 18th to early 19th century Meissen rib moulded sugar bowl and cover hand decorated in puce with Rococo style wheat sheaf and Indian flowers, with gold trim, gold points and intricate net borders. Marcolini period mark (1774 - 1817), measuring 4 1/2 inches across top of bowl section and 4 inches tall with lid. Chip on edge of lid flange (illustrated), unseen when in place, light losses to gilding, otherwise in fine condition.
I have also listed a Meissen tea bowl and saucer in this same pattern and an 18th century Limbach lidded pot with a closely matching pattern apparently intended to copy this particular early Indian painting pattern by Meissen. All pieces came from the same estate.
Uncommon antiques for the investor and choice collectibles for the clever collector.
COLLECTION: A time machine on a shelf; a museum in the kitchen. Reach out to touch the memory of sweet childhood laughter.
