Underglaze blue swords marks on backsides of tray and foot
Painted by Christian Friedrich Herold

The curved tray is meant to present a small chocolate set. The profiled foot serves as handle to show and underline the set’s appearance.

Tray and its foot are finely painted with polychrome chinoiseries, port scenes ("Kauffahrteiszenen" also in "Purple Camaieu"), landscapes and golden ornaments.

The tray’s back is orned with a green blue belt with lotus blossoms and tendrils in blue, yellow, red, dark green.

The shape of the tray is extremely rare in 18th century Meissen. Only three comparative pieces are known:

1. Rijksmuseum Amsterdam (Catalogue, Den Blaauwen, no. 90)
2. Collection Ludwig Bamberg (Catalogue, Hanemann, no. 42)
3. Private collection, Cologne (Catalogue, Brattig, MAK Cologne, no. 149)
Height 7.50 cm (2.95 inches)
Diameter 21.00 (8.27 inches)
