Watteau Scene & Floral Egg Vase

This is a superb tea jar or lidded vase made by Meissen in the late 19th or early 20th century. It is handpainted with a superb cobalt blue background with lots of fancy gilding on it and it has three cartouches of which two are handpainted with floral arrangements and the last but certainly not the least with a superb Watteau style scene with two lovers in a landscape surrounding. The legs are nice as well with a branch going up them ending in raised flowers on top. The piece is in perfect condition with three minor spots of wear on the very top gold ring around the opening. The original lid is perfect as well. The tea caddy is marked with the underglaze blue crossed swords mark underneath one leg which is partially gone because of its location. It 5.75 inches tall (including the lid) and has a diameter of 3 inches. Please email me for more information.
