From our European Porcelain Collection, a fine Meissen globular vessel with underplate and lid, late 19th century or possibly turn of the century circa 1910, well-painted in puce with gilt highlights. The large central rose depicted in the first image is so life-like and realistic that it is almost three dimensional: we hope our photos have done this justice. Adding to the marvelous charm of this piece are the dragonflies and other insects, all very well-rendered in gilt. Blue crossed swords to the reverse.

Size and Condition: Water Pot: 9 1/2 inches tall, 6 inches diameter at maximum diameter. Underplate: 8 1/4 inches diameter. There is some very minor rubbing to the gilt, essentially perfect condition.
