Bird painting is one of the most traditional genres at the Meissen porcelain manufactory and is translated into a work of art of modern opulence in the form of the Meissen Cosmopolitan Bird Painting Vase "Two Amazons on Branch and Palm Branch". The inspiration for the affectionate motif comes from bird paintings from past centuries. On the shining white background of the brilliant porcelain, the painting applied in shimmering colours has a particularly expressive effect. The depiction of the lifelike motifs is a filigree work whose craft is mastered by only a few specialised porcelain painters. The colourful painting of the Meissen Cosmopolitan Bird Painting Vase "Two Amazons on Branch and Palm Branch" is evidence of the artistic skills of the Meissen artisans, which has been unsurpassed for over 300 years. A wonderful gift for Christmas.
