Adorning the baroque handled vase, available in a limited edition of just 15, are hydrangeas and roses enriched with vine and rose hips. The bouquet is augmented on the reverse by peaches and grapes. Butterflies and insects on the neck of the vase inject great vibrancy into the scene, whilst the ground has been hand-daubed in a summery green. It takes several firings before the flowers and fruit in the decorative scheme acquire the full chromatic brilliance and opulence for which Meissen painting is cherished the world over. The striking shape of the baroque handle vase origins from the Meissen modeller Ernst August Leuteritz (1818-1893) from 1864.
