Platinum Flowers on Cobalt Coffee Pot

This is a stunning lidded coffee pot made by Meissen in the mid to late 19th century. Both pieces are decorated with a superb deep cobalt blue ground color and are hand painted with one of the nicest and also rarest decorations - the platinum and gold flowers on a cobalt blue background. I especially like the butterfly on the lower front of the main pot and on top of the lid! The lid has two smaller flowers to it as well. The top part of the main body and outside area of the lid were left in the white with lots of gold trim to the edges, etc. Nice acorn finial highlighted with gilding. The handle is in the shape of a snake with the head biting into the top rim and the scaly body forming the handle which fully gilded looks amazing! The spout also has the relief scales to the gilded part and a dragon head spout highlighted with gilding. Superb! One very rarely sees this design on a coffee pot and I also have the creamer and sugar dish on the site from this set! The pot and lid are in perfect condition and the main body is marked with the under glaze crossed swords mark underneath as well as the usual impressed / incised marks of the period. First choice off course. The piece is 9.75 inches tall including the handle, 7.25 inches from handle to spout and 4.5 inches in diameter. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $1999
