Cobalt & Scenic Vases

This is probably the nicest set of vases I have ever seen or owned! It is a set of six cobalt ground and scenic vases made by Meissen during the early 20th century until the Pfeiffer period around 1925. All six have a nice cobalt blue ground color with some elegant gilding but the best part is the scenes on each piece which have a touch of Art Nouveau to them which makes sense since they were made during this period. The scenes are of the Frauenkirche - Church of Our Lady in Dresden and the Hofkirche - The Catholic Church of the Royal Courth of Saxony in Dresden. The two pairs of vases each have one of these scenes on them, the small footed vase has the Hofkirche on it and the egg vase has the Albrechtsburg in Meissen on it where Meissen was founded which is extra nice for the collector! This is one superb set and amazingly in perfect condition! The vases are marked underneath with the underglazed blue crossed swords marks as shown. The smaller trumpet vases have the anniversary mark of 1910 on them, the taller vases and the footed vase the Pfeiffer period mark and the egg shaped vase has what is left of the mark from around 1900 with the hilts on it but it is mostly gone due to its location. Some of the usual impressed and incised marks as well as shown. The taller vases are 9.5 inches tall and 4.75 inches in diameter. The trumpet vases are 5.25 inches tall and 4.5 inches in diameter. The small footed vase is 5.5 inches tall and 2.875 inches in diameter. And last but certainly not least the egg shaped lidded piece is 6 inches tall and has a diameter of 3 inches and the legs are 4.25 inches apart at the widest point.
