IMPORTANT offerDING AND PAYMENT INFORMATION: IF YOU PLAN TO offer ON THIS ITEM AND ARE THE HIGH buyer I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THAT YOU DO NOT PAY ME UNTIL YOU RECEIVE MY INVOICE NOT THE INVOICE THAT IS GENERATED IMMEDIATELY AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE SALE BY . now has rules that all sellers MUST ship items for which they have been paid within one business day without exception. Those who follow my sales and have bought from me over the years know that I have always had a policy of shipping within 24 hours of a sale (see my response), however, there are times when I am out of town unexpectedly for a house call, an sale or an estate call and it simply is not possible to get to the post office in time. Also, if you find that there is more than one item you are interested in offerding on over a given time period and would like to take advantage of combined shipping, please again, DO NOT pay me until the last of those items you're watching has finished. I will then send you an invoice with an adjusted shipping fee which saves on postage.. I never charge a "handling fee". I would rather wait a few days on a payment and extend you the advantage of lower shipping fees than to be paid immediately - not ship - and then be scored negatively by for not shipping soon enough.Offered in this sale is a big, bold and impressive Meisen porcelain oblong bowl with molded scrolled open work that dates to the mid to perhaps earlier 1800s. It is marked on the underside of the base with a blue crossed swords marks along with under glaze incised marks which you can see illustrated in the second image. There are no scratch lines over the mark so this is a factory decorated first quality piece. It is a big piece that measures 12 3/4" long x 9 3/4" wide x 2 1/2" deep. It originally would have been highly gilded. Much of the original gold gilt is worn. The condition is excellent. There are no chips, cracks, flakes, hairlines or restoration of any kind. I have had a number of smaller round plates and bowls over the years with this decoration, however, I have never had an example of this big basket. Please feel free to email with any questions. I always guarantee everything that I sell to be as described. This piece is being sold WITHOUT A RESERVE as long as there is an opening offer.
