Dish "Fruit and flower painting"

To discover the magic of "white gold" is to risk becoming a collector of MEISSEN® artworks. That was the fate that befell Prince Elector Frederick Augustus I of Saxony, more commonly known as "Augustus the Strong" (1670-1733). He devoted his love to courtly ladies, hunting and, luckily, also porcelain. He was presented with the secret of making porcelain in 1710, having previously had the luxury ware imported from China and Japan. Before coming up with the "white" variant, however, in 1707 Johann Friedrich Böttger and Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus first cracked the formula for "fine red porcelain". Early items such as boxes, candleholders and dishes were then made in a manner recalling a style of silverware fashionable at the time.
The dish has now been produced in Meissen Porcelain® and decorated with early-style fruit in copper paints exclusively for our Limited-Edition Artworks series. Combining strictly ordered scale patterning with capriciously scattered floral sprays and fruit was a popular stylistic device in the Baroque.
