The birds are shown in their individual natural enviorment. Every plate has some wonderful story to tell.

This porcelain flower pot with under plate was produced at the Meissen Factory in Germany between the 1890s and 1910. The under plate has a diameter of 7 1/2 inches and the pot measures 6 1/4 inches high and 7 1/4 inches in diameter. The porcelain is quite substantial and heavy. The pot is pierced in the bottom to let water drain. It is hand painted with vividly colored bunches of roses on both sides. There are little rose buds around the edge of the under plate. The rims are trimmed with gold. From my experience, this appears to be a rather uncommon object made by Meissen. They took a utilitarian object and created an elegant flower pot. Condition: Excellent. It was gently used.

This set of 8 porcelain demitasse cups and saucers was produced in Russia by the Kornilov factory around 1900. All of the pieces are signed with the Kornilov mark with the double headed eagle. The saucers have a diameter of 4 3/4 inches. The cups are 2 1/8 inches high and the opening has a 2 1/2 inch diameter. The cups and saucers are made of fine, translucent porcelain. The decoration is intricate with the most delicate hand gilding and enameling. The decorating technique is similar to Russian enameled silver. It required a master artisan to paint and gild so elegantly. If you look carefully at the areas that are not enameled you will see minute brush strokes covering the surface. Even the handle has exquisite detail. These cups and saucers are works of art, deserving of appreciation and preservation. It is well known that vast amounts of antique porcelain were destroyed during the Russian Revolution. How wonderful it is that these have survived. Condition: Excellent
