Goerlitz City Scene Saucer

This is a saucer made by Meissen in in the early 19th century during the Schmierzeit period. It is hand painted with a scene of a part of the city of Görlitz which is the largest town of the former province of Lower Silesia in what used to be East Germany near Poland. The scene includes a dirt road with some nice trees lining it, lots of buildings in the background and some water in the front with a boat on it. It is nicely done and the subject is not one I ahve come across before. The center of the plate has a gold ring around it as does the edge of the rim.The piece is in nice condition with a minor touch of wear to the gold mainly around the well of the dish. The saucer is 1.125 inches tall and has a diameter of 5.375 inches and is marked underneath with the under glaze blue crossed swords as well as the usual impressed number and a blue dot near the foot ring. The mark has one cut across it denoting it to be a second choice piece. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $349
