Painted with numerous naval vessels with rowing boats bringing sailors to a fortified harbour within shaped gilt and iron-red cartouches with Böttger lustre panels within laub und bandelwerk borders, the reverse of the teabowl with indianische blumen, the interior with a stylised oriental scene. The reverse of the saucer with iron-red concentric circles.
This is an early and elaborate example of a harbour scene, Kauffahrtei, a genre that was to become popular in the 1730s.
The painting of these very early harbour scenes is sometimes attributed to Johann Georg Heintze.
Slight rubbing to gilt cartouche and small flakes to enamels
