Influenced by the study of botany, flower painting on the basis of naturalistic images has been an important element in Meissen's design repertoire since the 18th century. The manufactory's porcelain painters have drawn inspiration not only from nature, but also from artistic works of a range of eras. In this case, flower still lifes by Dutch Masters served as the source of inspiration. So also the table lamp "Tulips" that suits every interieur at Christmas time. On the 40cm high table lamp "Tulips" the tulips are captured in detail in the finest brushstrokes in their natural beauty. The delicate pink tones are particularly striking on the white Meissen porcelain. The lamp's rounded shape and radiant white lustre offer the porcelain painters a flawless, broad surface on which to bring their splendid paintings to life. Adorned with this wonderful artwork, the table lamp moves beyond the purely utilitarian, making room to integrate masterful artistry and craftsmanship into everyday life.
