Platinum Flowers on Cobalt Creamer

This is a stunning creamer / milk jug / pitcher made by Meissen in the mid to late 19th century. The piece is decorated with a superb deep cobalt blue ground color and is 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 backside of the creamer. The spout is left in the white with lots of gold trim to the edges, etc. The handle is in the shape of a snake with the head biting onto the top rim and the tail terminating in the middle of the main body. The rest of the handle is fully gilded with snake scales in relief. One very rarely sees this design on a creamer and I also have the sugar pot and coffee pot on the site from this set! The piece is in perfect condition and 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 creamer is 5.625 inches tall, 3.875 inches from handle to spout and 2.875 inches in diameter. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $999
