The "Wall Plate Birds in Garden Landscape" unites five exotic birds from different continents in a small paradise of leaf and flower branches. The scenery in cobalt blue underglaze painting by Meissen porcelain painter Ulrich Mehner shows a scenery with gold pheasants, parrot and hummingbird; three magnificent and symbolic birds. In Chinese mythology, gold pheasants stand for happiness, prosperity and beauty, and they are the empress' insignia. With the parrot, the Meissen painter has provided them with a witty advisor and with the hummingbird the graceful, cheerful opener of all hearts. Limited to 25 pieces.
