Platinum Flowers on Cobalt Sugar Dish

This is a stunning sugar pot / dish with its lid 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 backside of the sugar dish as well as on 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, One very rarely sees this design on a suagr pot and I also have the creamer 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 dish is 4.25 inches tall including the finial and 3.875 inches in diameter. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $999
