Neubrandenstein déjeuner with "Fanciful flowers and butterflies"

Johann Friedrich Eberlein (1694-1749) designed a tableware service for the Saxon Court's head chef Friedrich August von Brandenstein in around 1741 with moulded patterning that resembled wickerwork. Smooth panels subdivided this consummate wickerwork into four segments. The dividing lines acquired added Rococo fluidity in 1744 in a variant known as "Neubrandenstein". Decorated with delicate bouquets and scattered flowers, it developed into one of the most popular early MEISSEN® tableware services. It is now making a big comeback as a tea déjeuner. The decorative scheme, appearing for the first time in such pencilesque linear form on porcelain, is a real novelty. The tiny butterflies and florets have been drawn not with a fine brush but a steel pen. Our artist Anett Gerner consciously varied the thickness of her pen-strokes so as to lend vibrancy and profile to the painted detail. Butterflies and flower-heads are captured in their delicate, fragrant essence as if in some water-colour. They are admirably set off by leaves of various shape compactly painted in copper colours. The yellow ground, meanwhile, creates a radiantly sunny backdrop. Further flowers and butterflies intricately drawn in 23-carat gold form a link with relief-moulding whose level of accomplishment is underscored by clusters of gilded dots. A crossed-swords mark in gilt has additionally been incorporated into the decoration as a special treat. It crowns an ensemble in which shape, relief-moulding and painting - key elements in Meissen tableware art - co-exist in a perfect state of harmony.
