Dish with swans in relief, Shape "Swan", 38 x 28 cm

The relief-moulded swans and water weeds on this elaborately fashioned dish recall the famous Swan Service. Manufactory artists have over and over again been spurred on by the wealth of shapes and patterns contained in the MEISSEN® archives to come up with further variations of this great, heritage-rich porcelain art. Here, the relief mouldings have been decorated in a "Capodimonte" style of painting most finely executed in black and red. Despite the three-dimensional nature of the work, adding the colour makes the most exacting demands of the artists' painting skills as well as presupposing a good knowledge of the anatomy and morphology of flora and fauna.

The piece undergoes initial enamel firing once the grey shading has been laid on. The magnificent, richly nuanced painted decoration is then consummately applied in multiple layers containing various permutations of colour. The design is regally rounded off by an opulent ornamental border band in 23-carat gold that stands out against the white well like a radiant frame. A sumptuous piece that veritably calls out to be filled with classy delicacies.
