Augustus Rex Bell

This is a very rare treat - a bell made by Meissen in the 19th century. It is handpainted with a blue ground and lots of nice gilding but the best part is that it has an armorial on it as well as a monogram of Augustus Rex himself - August the Strong or King August II was the founder of the Meissen factory. This is likely an anniversary piece or a special order piece but either way it is extremely rare to have his coat of armor on anything let alone in combination with his monogram. The armorial is very well painted with his crown above it and surrounded by fancy gilding. The AR monogram also has his crown above it and is surrounded by the same fancy gilding. The bell is in perfect condition. It is marked with the underglaze blue crossed swords as shown. The bell is 3.875 inches tall and 2.75 inches in diameter.
