Closter Veilsdorf Cup

This is a cup made by Kloster Veilsdorf around 1760. Kloster Veilsdorf was the most important Thuringian factory of the 18th century. It was founded in 1760 by Prince von Hildburghausen with the help of the arcanist Meyer. In 1795 the factory went to the Duke of Sachsen Altenburg who sold it to the Greiner family who owned most of the other makers in this region by then. They are still around today. This cup is handpainted with two fruit and floral arrangements as well as a smaller flower and a small flower on the inside. The cup also has some amazingly molded details and one heck of a fancy handle. The cup is marked on the underside with an underglaze CV mark in blue as well as an incised HL or soemthing like that. The peice is in great condition with two small rim chips and small rim firing spot. It is a rare piece that displays well and is a must have in any porcelain collection. The cup is 1.75 inches tall and 3.125 inches in diameter. Please e-mail me for more information or photos.

Price is $399
