The "Cup with Snowball Blossoms" goes back to Johann Joachim Kaendler. He created the famous "snowball blossom decoration" in 1739 for a service that King August III gave to his wife Maria Josepha. Countless sculptured white flowers cover each part. The shape, relief and colourful decoration of the snowball blossoms combine to create a fascinating naturalness. Sometimes the small white chalices merge with the shape, sometimes they overlap irregularly. With gentle strokes of the brush, it is possible to emphasize the sculptural naturalness even more. Golden handles, feet and leaves give the box a very special elegance. The matching saucer is also embossed with the fine snowball blossoms, painted and provided with small golden feet.
