The Cake-Platter "Swan Service Indian Flower Branch" is part of the most extravagant service of the Baroque, the "Swan Service". Johann Joachim Kaendler created the service with over 2200 pieces, which is decorated with the name-giving swan pair in reeds. The Cake- Platter "Swan Service Indian Flower Branch" with high-quality gold border is reminding of a seashell. Indian flower branches contribute to the magnificent appearance. An impressive Christmas present. Reproducing the blossom petals on the relief surface demands the most delicate brushwork from the manufactory painters. The "Indian Flower Branches" are among the most beloved decors of the Meissen manufactory. Modelled after East-Asian archetypes of "Indian" painting, the floral motif abounds with symbolism. The lotus as a symbol of purity occupies a special position.
