Amazing 18thc Meissen Porcelain Red Court Dragon Plate Porzellan Teller Chinese For Sale
For sale is a porcelain plate made by Meissen around the mid 18th century.
It is handpainted with the superb red Chinese Ming dragon type Court Dragon or Hofdrachen design that was until
1918 exclusively made for the Saxon Royal Court. In the Chinese culture
the red dragon symbolizes prosperity, power and good feng-shui. Thus all
pieces before this time were used by royalty especially the ones in the
18th century since they were fewer of them then. Many pieces were made
over almost 200 years but rarely does one see one for sale in good
condition. This piece is in top condition with almost no wear. It does
have manufacturing flaws like the normal black firing spots as well as
dimples in the paste and one larger ground down area that was glazed and
painted over as shown in the pictures. There is a little stacking wear
to the clear glaze which I have shown in the pics as well! The plate
is just under 1.5 inches tall and 9.375 inches in diameter. Marked
underneath with the small underglaze blue crossed swords (1st quality!) as well as an
impressed number 8. China If you like my goodies have a look at my other sales for a lot more top maker pieces or contact me through if you are looking for something else.
