Closter Veilsdorf Sugar Dish

This is a lidded sugar dish made by Kloster Veilsdorf around 1770. Closter 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 dish and lid are hand painted with two large polychrome floral arrangements on the main body and one on the lid as well as a two small single flowers and a puce trim to the finial of the lid. The porcelain itself has a ribbed design to it that is really common to all the makers from this region. The main piece is marked on the underside with their interlaced CV mark as shown as well as an incised 2 and 3. The pot and lid are in great condition with some discoloration to the underside edge of the lid which is unglazed and that is normal over time. The pot and lid are 3.625 inches tall and 3.625 inches in diameter. Please e-mail me for more information or photos.
