A Meissen porcelain cream pot and cover circa 1745 with a pine cone finial. The under glaze hand painted pattern is a variation on the Meissen onion pattern. The crossed sword mark is loosely painted in under glaze blue with an extra dot that is sometimes found on early pieces. Height is approximately 5 ½ inches (14cm). Width from spout to handle is approximately 5 ¾ inches (14.6cm).
Condition: There are firing flaws where the feet attach to the pot. No chips, cracks, or repairs. The star crack in the picture of the bottom is in the glaze only. There are also a couple of firing flaws on the interior.
Nice early form of Meissen porcelain.
