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 wonderful late 19th century Meissen porcelain bowl decorated with alternating panels of flowers and young courting couples. It is marked on the underside of the base with a blue crossed swords mark which you can see illustrated in the 2nd image. Please note that it has two scratch lines over the mark which indicates that this is likely an "outside decorated" piece. More than likely Meissen produced the blank and the bowl was decorated at one of the Dresden area studios. This pattern which I believe was originally inspired by the works of Watteau was very popular at the time and painted by any number of the Dresden and Austrian porcelain studios. It measures 8 1/2" square and is roughly 3" deep. Note how the corners are almost pierced. The condition is excellent. There are no chips, cracks, flakes, hairlines or restoration. A nice piece of 19th century Meissen. 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. High buyer to pay $10.00 shipping/ including insurance - inside the United States.
