Vase with "Chinoiseries after Höroldt", landscapes with pagodas, H 42 cm

This magnificent goblet-shaped vase opens up vistas of an exotic world long past. Each of its three cartouches on front and back, enclosing either figural scenes or pavilion landscapes, tickles the fancy for a quick trip through time. The motifs shown are from the famous "Schulz Codex", one of the largest period collections of graphic sources that MEISSEN® has been treasuring for more than 250 years now.
We have the great porcelain painter Johann Gregorius Höroldt (1696-1775) to thank for these fabulous chinoiseries. He was active at the MEISSEN® Manufactory for 45 years and in 1731 developed a unique palette of thermally stable overglaze colours that enabled MEISSEN® to emulate Asian decorative schemes on porcelain as well as evolving patterns of its own. Höroldt is particularly well-known for his copybook painting material depicting scenes from everyday life in China. It reflects the typical view held of China by a Baroque-age European who had never himself actually seen the "Middle Kingdom".
Images most finely brushed onto the porcelain are lent notable intensity by a hand-painted cobalt-blue ground that radiates through the glaze. Floral ornament encircles the bulbous central section. A framing device and floral tendrils in high-carat gold elevate enchanting scenes that the eye can never tire of beholding into one big consummate whole.
