Blue Onion Strainer

This is a porcelain strainer made by Meissen around the mid to late 19th century. It is handpainted with the famous blue onion design in underglaze blue around the rim with a gold trim to the edge and the center of the bowl has lots of holes in it for drainage. An unusual piece I ahve not come across before but definitely a must have for the guy collecting kitchen utensils and such. This piece is in great condition with some tiny stray blue spots in the center of the dish and the little feet underneath have some nibbles to the bottom edge which are not obvious at all when on display or even at first glance. The dish is 2 inches tall and 7.875 inches in diameter. Marked underneath with the underglaze blue crossed swords as well as a numbers 12 in blue by one of the feet. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $349
