description
The vase is decorated with the tsarist arms and a portrait of Peter the Great, whose impressive height partly explains how he came by his epithet. The monarch initiated numerous reforms with the aim of transforming Russia into a modern state. Reference is made to the founding of Saint Petersburg as a forward-looking capital and "window onto the West" through images on either side of the cover of Peter's Court Palace and a statue of him on horseback. The decoration is notable for a portrait finely painted against a dark-blue ground and for the purple lustre, one of the earliest Meissen colours, that highlights the coat of arms and the vase's neck. An extraordinary ruler and the uniqueness of the Meissen Manufactory.
