C1745 German Meissen Cup, Crossed Swords Mark, Puce Landscapes Turquoise/gilding For Sale

C1745 German Meissen Cup, Crossed Swords Mark, Puce Landscapes Turquoise/gilding

MEISSEN CUP circa 1745

A very sophisticated oval cup with panel shaping, turquoise/eau de nilground with puce landscapes in gilded cartouches. The handle is gilded and very ornate, almost Oriental in style, with spurs top and bottom.

The inside rim has a gilded pattern and there is a broad band of gilding round thefairly small footrim.

Both main decorations are in puce and feature Dutch style figures in tall hats and cloaks standing by a brick tower and seascapeon one side and on the other, a Turkish or Chinese figure awaiting the arrival of a ship with his goods ready to load. Birds are flying high and the puce has been used in a smudgy way to represent the clouds. It is all beautifully painted.

Height of cup: 7.5 cm (3 inches)

Marks: please see photo - crossed swords mark in underglaze blue and a gilder's mark (A or H) in gold.

Condition: some rubbing to the gilding on the handle and the rim; a 3cm hairline crack running from the rim just beside the handle(you can perhaps see it in the photo with the handle on the left); a miniscule rim chip opposite side of the handle. Otherwise it is in very good condition and a lovely example of the work done at the Meissen factory in Germanyin the 1800's.

Last sentence should read......AT THE MEISSEN FACTORY IN THE 18TH C. Sorry, typo! It was of course made in about 1745.
