For the "Basket of Roses" wall panel, Meissen porcelain painter Christine Päßler veered away from historic templates, creating her own unique painting - a novelty in the manufactory's still life genre. For this modern still life, roses are arranged in a basket with fruits. The painting's warm colours, the image's transient nature, and the realism of the motif are all reminiscent of the Biedermeier period. The interplay of light and shadow coupled with expertly placed touches of colour create a sculptural effect and a spatial depth that make the fruit and flowers appear to emerge out of the image. When painting, the artist must work with a great deal of foresight: the on-glaze colours initially appear in dull tones, and only take on their variety of intensities in later decorative firings. The delicate golden frame and arabesques are also applied by hand and add a radiant aura.
