Strasbourg Scenic Saucer

This is a rare and superb saucer made in Strasbourg or early Frankenthal in the 1750's. The Strassburg factory was founded by Karl Franz Hannong as an earthenware maker around 1721 but soon after his son Paul Anton took over the factory around 1732. After he went into partnership with Ringler he began the production of porcelain. The competition with Vincennes forced him to close the factory and move it to Frankenthal which also used this mark in their years of production but usually in different shapes. The saucer dish is hand painted with a superb scene in the center of a cow resting on the ground surrounded by some nice greenery and a piece of fence. Scattered flowers along the rim as well as two tiny leaves to hide flaws from the making. Gold trim to the edge. An extremely rare piece to find from a rare maker. The piece is marked with the under glaze blue H with a dot above it as well as L or C 83 and some incised numbers / letters as shown. The saucer is in perfect condition with some manufacturing flaws and impurities normal on these early wares. The saucer is 1.125 inches tall and 5.5 inches in diameter.
