Kloster Veilsdorf Pot

This is a coffee pot made by Kloster Veilsdorf around 1770. 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 pot is handpainted with two large floral arrangements as well as a few smaller flowers and a puce ring around the top as well as the lid. The spout is smaller than on any other factory and is one of the identifying marks when an item is not marked. This one is marked though on the underside with an underglaze CV mark as well as an incised BZ or G2 or something along those lines. The pot and lid are in great condition with a small firing line on the inside near the spout and on the lid where the knob meets it. Now to a dilemma I am having. While I am sure the lid is Kloster Veilsdorf as well it is decorated slightly different than the pot. It's probably OK and me just being paranoid but I thought I'd mention it. There are museum ID's on both pieces. The pot is 8.5 inches tall and 4.75 inches in diameter. Please e-mail me for more information or photos.

Price is $1749
