Kloster Veilsdorf Saucer

This is a rare porcelain saucer made by Kloster Veilsdorf of Germany in about 1767. 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. The saucer is handpainted with cute putti on clouds as well as lots of small flowers and an iron red and gold trim. This is one of their most famous designs! It is marked underneath with a blue CV mark. It is in great condition with just a little wear with the gilding on the rim. The saucer is 1.125 inches tall and 4.75 inches in diameter.

Price is $749
