Lizard pot with "Oriental Floral Splendour", V 0.4 l


One of the first pots ever made at the Meissen Porcelain Manufactory has a surprisingly avantgarde look about it. It was modelled in Böttger Stoneware® a good three hundred years ago, at a time when artists' imaginations were still
fired by precious goods from faraway lands. In the vein of vessels from China, a tiny guardian lion sits atop the cover as a symbol of bravery and strength. The handle and spout are fashioned in the shape of lizards basking in the sun,
creatures emblematic of protectedness, happiness and warmth. White porcelain now reveals the consummate pot's credentials in a new light. Porcelain painter Andreas Herten has managed to bring it out to perfection with delicate
decorative detail based on oriental ceiling ornamentation. He has covered the pot with tiny tattoos drawn by pen with great precision in the Indian style - an ingenious mix of cultures.
