Favourite Item
Fine Meissen Cup & Saucer, dating to the period in Meissen history known as the 'Academic Period'. The figures illustrated on both the cup and the saucer wear classical garb and adopt poses characteristic of the age (as can be seen in contemporary countryside scene paintings).

The finely detailed decoration captures the natural creasing of the figures' clothing. The gilding and the puce motif beneath each rim are likewise very finely executed.
Extremely good, some very minor wear to the rim gilding commensurate with the age.
